Xamarin Forms SQLite-net PCL nuget package failing to install

Following Local Databases Xamarin guide in order to add SQLite database to a Xamarin Forms project I spent quite some time on adding the “SQLite.Net PCL” nuget package. It failed with the next message:

Could not install package ‘System.Runtime.InteropServices.RuntimeInformation 4.0.0’. You are trying to install this package into a project that targets ‘.NETPortable,Version=v4.5,Profile=Profile111’, but the package does not contain any assembly references or content files that are compatible with that framework. For more information, contact the package author.

The solution is pretty easy, you just have to install “System.Runtime.InteropServices.RuntimeInformation” before installing “SQLite.Net PCL”  nuget package.
