OSMC's October update is here with Kodi 18.4 - OSMC

OSMC's October update is now here. We didn't release an update in August or September as we waited to collate a significant number of improvements and stabilise Kodi 18.4 for our users. We are working on a number of significant improvements that will take some more time, but wanted to delay this update no further and maintain our commitment to regular updates.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://osmc.tv/2019/11/osmcs-october-update-is-here-with-kodi-18-4/

Just upgraded 3 Raspberry Pi’s (1 RPi2 and 2 RPi3’s) and all of them are messed up now. They boot but won’t launch Kodi, they just get the frowning face and reattempt to re-launch it. Don’t have time to debug right now.


Exactly the same here on my RPi3+, instant Segfault every time kodi starts.

I’m looking for a better place to report this but maybe be careful if you have a Pi installing 18.4.0-5

Same here, unfortunately. Any (easy) way to roll back?

I’m looking at this

Same here

I’ve just given this a test but couldn’t reproduce a problem. As no one has posted a log yet, I’m not able to work out further what’s gone on at this point but will continue to test.

Have you seen this post?

I have seen the post, but unfortunately, that is not a log. Once I have the necessary logs it should be resolved promptly



Logs available at https://paste.osmc.tv/noyexupiva

I have disabled the update system to prevent further issues.

FYI: after

sudo systemctl stopmediacenter
mv ~/.kodi ~/kodi.bak
sudo systemctl start mediacenter

still getting frown face

A potential fix is being built here, but will take some time to verify. The problem is still not identified yet.

From logs

Oct 31 21:35:24 osmc mediacenter[386]: /usr/bin/mediacenter: line 142: 438 Segmentation fault sudo -u osmc LIRC_SOCKET_PATH=/var/run/lirc/lircd $KODI --standalone -fs

Is there a way to rollback or enable the system to boot kodi so we can update/fix rather than having to reinstall?

Sam I get an unable to install update error on Vero 4 as well… related I’m guessing.

Yes as a quick fix (even so the Vero not impacted) @sam_nazarko disabled the update server. Which unfortunately also means people will see an update error as the update check fails

I thought so. Thanks for confirming…

Updated about two hours ago. No problem so far on a Vero 4K. Update went smoothly, radio and video playback working properly.
