Unable to install TVHeadend via App store

Hi all,

I was thinking to give TVHeadend a go - I have a USB DVB-T stick (not currently plugged in) but when I went to the App store , I can select TVHeadend and say to install (comes up as install (1) in the bottom right corner) but when I select Apply, nothing happens.

I tried to upload my logs via the grab-logs command but I kept getting the following error:

sudo grab-logs -X
Logs successfully uploaded.
Logs available at http://paste.osmc.io/{"message":"Documentexceedsmaximumlength.

I can’t use My OSMC at the moment because the family are using the machine. Perhaps tomorrow I can upload them if needed. In the meantime, this seems to be the relevant part of kodi.log:

Is this something silly I’m missing?


Reboot, then go straight to MyOSMC - Updates - Manual Controls - Check for Updates Now.

Update when prompted.

That should get you on to the latest version, and this problem should be gone.
