I have now some rpi2 model b that cannot update any of the addons. Even after updating them to august latest update did not resolve the problem with addons.
Basically what happens is that not even one addon that is installed and has an update cannot deploy the update.
Not only that but there is no abbility to install new addons. Already tried that with no success.
Now in case one of the addons that has an update is the skin in use then the rpi is trying to update it and the moment it fails to do it the screen becomes black with the rpi and kodi working in the background normally. And all you can see is sometimes fragments of the skin in use, or words on the screen.
A reboot solved temporarelly this problem, just until kodi try again to update the skin.
One solution to this is to either use a skin that does not have an update, or stop automatic updates in kodi. Either way they do not work anymore.

Power Supply Type: 5V
Power specs: 2A
Peripherals: (USB hub, Wifi Adapter)

unfortunatelly the user that gave me the logs did not enabled debbuging.
If those logs are not enough i can ask him to do it.
in case anyother user gets a black screen a while after they get into kodi either disable automatic updates of addons in kodi or use a skin that has no newer update.
Thanks in advance
ps This might come handy since i took a look in the logs
