Stack Overflow gives advice about how to update the .NET version but I think I have done this and the errors don't point toward a dodgy NET version.

Sometimes the Roslyn compiler gets confused. Try closing VS, then deleting he Bin & Obj folders in the project, then restart, restore NuGet packages, then recompile.

Sometimes you may also need to delete the hidden .vs folder as well.
