Sad face loop after october update

Today I installed the october update on my Pi 1 and after the reboot kodi got stuck in a sad face loop.

If i manually install the previous rbp1-mediacenter-osmc_16.1.0-20_armhf.deb everything works fine.
If I install the rbp1-mediacenter-osmc_16.1.0-24_armhf.deb kodi get stuck in the sad face loop again.

In System Journal I found this suspicious line:
Nov 04 22:09:05 pi mediacenter[2543]: *** Error in `/usr/lib/kodi/kodi.bin’: free(): invalid pointer: 0xa43453b8 ***

You can find the full log here:
System Journal

Can anyone help to fix this?

Ok thanks yknivag.
I moved .kodi and actual kodi mediacenter started flawlessly.

Afterwards I restored the .kodi backup and removed a suspicious pvr addon which causes the trouble. All fine now.

Thank you for the nice hint!

Glad you got up and running. :slight_smile:
