Error installing osmc update please report


Hope you can help me further. I’ve restarted Kodi/OSMC and went straight for the OSMC menu to update. Getting “Error installing, please report this on the OSMC Forum”. I then uploaded the log.

I’ve also scanned earlier posts that did not help:

I’ve also done what some suggested to do and I’ll paste the results here. Hopefully this will help someone to locate my issue.

Lol, you gotta be kidding! This feels like that time I tried to change settings to my router and then it didn’t work anymore one hour later my neighbor said “oh but I don’t have internet either, it went out about an hour ago maybe that’s it”.

Well thanks ! I’ll just sit this one out for now and kick this subject if it remains the same after a longer wait.

You should be able to update now.
