Loving my new raspberry pi 2 and have tried all of the different releases. I have one problem with OSMC though, if I try download add-ons it just says 0% for a bit and then a message pops up saying please wait then it returns to normal. The add-on however in still not downloaded. This error doesn’t seam to affect programs, weather, skins or other scripts, which download ok. But subtitle add-ons and video add-ons all will not download.
xbian and openelec did not have this issue, only OSMC. I have tried redownloading and installing the RC2 image a few times but the error persists. The uploaded log file is from a fresh install on the rpi2. I attempted to install the youtube plugin. http://xbmclogs.com/ps79nkhb
Here is a link to the full log uploaded through osmc http://paste.osmc.io/afogametoy
I’m able to ping google from the Pi and I tried both dhcp and static Ip. I’ve redone the log to include a failed download from video addons and a success download from lyrics. Only some categories are effected by this but includes the whole category.
Thanks for the updated logs. Unfortunately I can’t see anything in the system journal this is amiss with your Ethernet connection.
Being able to ping something doesn’t on it’s own prove that there are no issues with your internet connection, and your log is still full of curl errors. Search the log file you posted for CURL and copy one of the URL’s it says it can’t connect to, for example:
First try going to that in a browser on your PC on the same internet connection - for me I see a big youtube image so I know I can get to that file. Now try downloading that to the Pi using curl at an ssh command line:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN">
<p>The document has moved <a href="http://mirror.ox.ac.uk/sites/xbmc.org/addons/helix/plugin.video.youtube/fanart.jpg">here</a>.</p>
As you can see that’s a 302 redirect, so now try the same with the redirect URL both in your PC’s browser and curl on the Pi command line. (You may get a different URL if you’re not in the UK)
I get the same image using the redirected mirror URL.
Trying to download it will curl will (should) show gibberish as it’s a jpg image not text.
What country are you in ? Is it possible some URL’s are being blocked/filtered by your ISP ? If not it’s still possible that the regional mirror you’re redirected to is having issues.
I tried what you said from the web browser on my pc and I got the large youtube image. connecting through ssh I got this:

I’m in Australia. If I can change the mirror could this help?
Can you have a look at this thread and try some of the tests listed there ? You might be having the same dns related issue: (if it does seem that you are seeing the same issue there, probably best to continue discussion there)
No, I tried putting osmc in DMZ zone on my router and followed the instruction on the suggested thread but neither worked. My issue was that some things download like skins but other catagories will not. Program addons download but all video adons do not. Internet works for some not for others. Hopefully it will be resolved in a future update
This issue is nearly exclusively only one of two problems. Either a DNS problem or a source repo issue. Try changing your DNS to Google public DNS (184.108.40.206) and or try connecting to source with a different device.
I am already using the 220.127.116.11 DNS, interestingly I cannot get a connection if I try use the default dns to the router. As a workaround I found the zip file of the addon I wanted and used the wget function to download it and manually installed through osmc.
Im not sure about the source repo, If I use xbian or openelec there are no issues. Not sure if they use a different repo
just a quick note on this. I performed another reinstall and this did not work alone. Instead I had to do the same thing outlined in the forum you linked to before which was to update, edit /etc/connan.prefs and then edit edit/usr/bin/start-network
Last time I had missed the step of updating and instead manually created conman.prefs which did not work.
Just installed OSMC on my RP2 and I am experiencing the same problem. Now I am almost a complete noob in this matter. Can someone please tell me how to reach the file (etc/connman.prefs )for editing it ? I am able to use putty and get into command mode through a pc
