Unable to Pair Mac Agent from Visual Studio

Hi Everyone,

I'm unable to connect to Mac from Visual Studio.

I'm using Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2019 with Version 16.4.4 trying to connect with Mac Catalina with version 10.15.7.

I'm getting following error

An error occurred while generating the SSH keys. Please check that the environment is properly configured. Details: cat: /Users/kensium/Library/Caches/Xamarin/XMA/Keys/51f68e46-35a0-4883-b21e-6aadba73f9ba: No such file or directory


Did tried by deleting the \AppData\Local\Xamarin\MonoTouch files. But the result is same.
And also followed the steps from the link from here. But result is same.

Can any one help me out.
