Bad Gateway 502 Error when installing addons/skins

So I’ve been trying to install a new skin, each time it fails. Looking into the logs, curl is failing to download anything and returning a 502 error. Any ideas for a work around at all?

It just means the Kodi mirrors are having issues. They should be back again shortly. Try again in an hour or so.


It seems to be a problem with Asian IPs (I am in Japan) getting a wrong redirect. Its been an issue for some time, but the workaround is to use a VPN to download the .zip and install manually.
Just thought I’d let anyone else who has this problem know about it.
The link below explains the error in more detail.

I see. We are looking at offering our own addons mirror to alleviate the strain on the Kodi mirror system in the near future.
