Dual-pronged problem that might be caused by the same thing!

So, I'm trying to install monogame/monodevelop.

Installed MonoDevelop with sudo apt-get install mono-devel. That opens appropriately and seems to work fine otherwise. Got a basic C# Console 'Hello, world!' to run correctly.

I went here and downloaded the version for Linux. I gave it executable permission with chmod +x monogame-sdk.run and ran it. It produced the following:

$ sudo ./monogame-sdk.run 
Verifying archive integrity... All good.

To uninstall MonoGame SDK you can run "monogame-uninstall" from terminal.

Pretty much looks like the installation did not finish correctly, but I'm not sure what's wrong with the script to make it do that. As a probable result of this, MonoDevelop doesn't allow me to create a MonoGame app of any kind. (this doesn't appear when I try to create a new solution)

If there's any other information you might need, please let me know!

I had the same issue. Which version of MonoDevelop do you have installed? I was on version 5.10 and upgraded to version 6.x which solved my problem.
