Kodi 18.2 issue


After upgrading to Kodi 18.2 RC1 I’m unable to install addons or zip repositories. Always the install fail! The unknown sources is enable.

Anyone knows how to fix the issue?

Thanks in advance

To get a better understanding of the problem you are experiencing we need more information from you. The best way to get this information is for you to upload logs that demonstrate your problem. You can learn more about how to submit a useful support request here.

Depending on the used skin you have to set the settings-level to standard or higher, in summary:

  • enable debug logging at settings->system->logging

  • reboot the OSMC device

  • reproduce the issue

  • upload the log set either using the Log Uploader method within the My OSMC menu in the GUI or the ssh method invoking command grab-logs -A

  • publish the provided URL from the log set upload, here

Thanks for your understanding. We hope that we can help you get up and running again shortly.

Your pi is starved for power. You need to sort out your power problems and use an appropriate PSU.

Thank you,
I already got it but before the upgrade to the Koi 18.2 RC1 I’m able to install and manage the addons! Not now

Until you get a proper power supply, you will have problems. Your supply was probably marginal before and V18 does use more CPU, so your marginal power supply (my bet is really a cell phone charger) is no longer capable of supplying enough power.

Your power supply probably isn’t up to scratch. You can learn more on our Wiki here: https://osmc.tv/wiki/raspberry-pi/frequently-asked-questions/

Hello Sam,

I know that the power is not enough but why I can´t update my addons?
Please check the log file at: https://paste.osmc.tv/aqucakoves
Thanks in advance.

Possibly related to this message in the log:

2019-06-16 11:32:43.620 T:2979697872    INFO: ADDON: cpluff: 'Could not read plug-in directory /usr/lib/kodi/addons: No such file or directory'

Losing the whole directory and its contents might be the result of a corrupted SD card. To get the addons back you need to reinstall the rbp1-mediacenter-osmc package.

sudo apt-get install --reinstall rbp1-mediacenter-osmc

but be aware that this might not be the only error on the card.

I would also suggest that you remove the stretch-devel line from /etc/apt/sources.list unless you are sure it needs to be there.

Thank you for your reply.
The presented solution doesn’t solve the problem!
Please send me other possible solutions.


It seems like your SD card may be problematic.

Some SD cards are not genuine or have a lower capacity than advertised. Some simply fail over time.

Symptoms of SD cards not working correctly are:

  • Read-only behaviour, or changes made not persisting
  • A filesystem corruption error

Symptoms of counterfeit SD cards are:

  • Writing works until a certain filesystem size is reached, thereafter, writes seem to cause issues where existing data is lost or newly written data is not preserved.
  • SD card fails after a short amount of time.

Counterfeit cards are usually found on Amazon and eBay.

SD cards have a limited lifespan. I recommend you change SD card and suspect that issues will no longer persist with a good card. If you would like to be a good quality SD card purpose manufactured for OSMC, then you can find one in the Store.

The SD card is fine, its’ a 8GB Samsung and I perform to the dist-upgrade without problems.
The problem is the addons update/install and the movies database update.
I’m unable to update from within this new Kodi release! How to rollback the Kodi?

Until you get a proper power supply, it’s useless to try and fix any other problems.

  1. As already mentioned, get a proper power supply.
  2. Reinstall OSMC.
