Cannot find type System.MarshalByRefObject error in UWP app

Playing and learning with UWPs today, I found a strange error when compiling with VS 2015:

Xaml Internal Error error WMC9999: Cannot find type System.MarshalByRefObject

It's a bit misleading, but one can easily see that it's related to DLL references. After dealing with it for a while, I realized some of my Nuget packages were not up to date. Updating them fixed the issue.

More precisely, updating Microsoft.NETCore.UniversalWindowsPlatform to version 5.1.0 fixed the issue.

Hope it helps!
