Warning PS0219 targeting pack for .NET 4.7.2 not installed

In my project when I build I'm getting warning PS0219:
Warning PS0219: The targeting pack for target platform ".NETFramework,Version=v4.7.2" is either not installed or not properly registered. Please install the appropriate targeting pack. (1, 1)

I'm not targeting .NET 4.7.2 and cannot find any occurrence of the text "4.7.2" anywhere in my solution. I'm actually targeting .NET 4.6.2. I'm using PS tools version 5.0.40 and NuGet packages version 5.0.32

Why is this warning produced? How can I prevent it?
Best regards,
Tim Long

    During build PostSharp may need to generate type and assembly mappings between the current run-time platform and the target platform of your project. If PostSharp cannot find some of the files required for this process then it will emit a warning. The warning message and condition were not correct and the fix has been implemented in version 5.0.33.

    Please try to upgrade your NuGet packages to the latest version and rebuild your solution. You should receive no warning or a warning with a more clear message depending on the files installed on your machine.
