[MH-kodi19 / MH-kodi18 / MH-kodi17] how-to get last version

Postby father.mande » Wed Aug 07, 2019 5:07 pm

Hi,

Just to remember to you (after some questions ... )
Kodi18 or Kodi19 used the INTERNAL UBUNTU update mechanism base on official Kodi PPA

Kodi18 use by default (if you not change it) Unstable PPA ... actual version (after update of Ubuntu) is : 18.3+git20190621.1610-final-0bionic
Kodi19 use by default (but for now only) Nightly build PPA actual version is : 19.0+git20190807.0203-2b14719-0bionic
This are update using myHD command : myHD apt_upgrade_package

Kodi17 is not provide using PPA but directly recompile at last version (cohabit with kodi18 or kodi19 with separate settings) : 17.6+git20171114.2125-final

Philippe.
N.B. This Kodi versions will be cancelled due to the arrival of new APKG permitting a better support (no more need to add myHD in the middle) ... Thanks to Patrick

I've updated myHD to 1.01

I had Kodi 18.3 running before that, I can't remember how I did the update from 18.1 to 18.3, but I think I used sudo.

Now Kodi shows 18.3 when I start it, but myHD claims that 18.1 is installed.

Using myHD apt_upgrade_package did do some Python upgrades, but no Kodi upgrade.

As far as I'm aware Kodi 18.4 is current, how do I get it?

Regards,

Dirk

Hi,

Yes it's a display problem.
I have to add a permanent test of real Kodi version in Ubuntu and report to myHD, but it's difficult to change the APKG version (somewhere in the NAS under Asustor responsibility) .
So I have to imagine a solution for this mismatch (for ex. in MH-kodi19 ... I don't report a version for the APKG ... only 19
for MH-kodi18 ... I put the version available when I write MH-kodi18 ... so APKG stay in 18.1 but don't reflect reality.

To get correct version please use : myHD_root "dpkg -l kodi"

I will work on this ... please be patient.

Philippe.
NB from my AUS Zenfone ... I am in trekking

Thank you Philippe,

"dpg -l kodi" shows that I have 18.3 installed.

According to this web page http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2019/09/kodi-18-4-released-install-ubuntu-18-04/ , there should be a kodi 18.4 for Ubuntu.

How can I install it, myHD apt_upgrade_package doesn't work.

regards,

Dirk

Hi,

Normally after a delay (and perhaps linked to the Ubuntu repository I used) you can retry update (I suppose that when you write "myHD apt_upgrade_package doesn't work." this is only to said : it don't upgrade Kodi not a real not working at all ? )

Another possibility if retry don't update can come from Kodi that don't update the repository
... I used the beta & release candidate repository and not the stable
... you can try to follow Kodi wiki to change repository from this to the stable one ... in lot of case a simple update is enough in some case an uninstall reinstall is require ... in this situation :
... .... don't forgot to reinstall addons (binary) from Ubuntu repo. not manually installed
... ... all your settings are saved ... so you don't have to reconfigure

Same if you want to update to Kodi19, just change the repo from beta to nightly build repo.

Philippe.
NB I am only in mine during short time up to middle of next week ...

Thanks Philippe,

Yes, of course "myHD apt_upgrade_package" worked, just not for Kodi.

However, I did succeed in installing Kodi 18.4, and this is how I did it:

myHD enter_as_root

apt-cache policy | grep team-xbmc (I got no response)

add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/ppa
response:
Official Team Kodi stable releases
More info: https://launchpad.net/~team-xbmc/+archive/ubuntu/ppa
plus a whole list of hit + get


apt-get update
normal output

apt-cache policy | grep team-xbmc
result:
500 http://ppa.launchpad.net/team-xbmc/ppa/ubuntu bionic/main amd64 Packages
release v=18.04,o=LP-PPA-team-xbmc,a=bionic,n=bionic,l=Kodi stable,c=main,b=amd64


apt-get remove kodi
expected result

apt-get install kodi
expected result

After this I had Kodi 18.4

Hi,

Yes ... good
If you return back to "beta & candidate release" later you can upgrade to Kodi19 without change ...

For the moment Kodi19 is in nightly build repo.

Thanks to write the how-to, I am in travel (trekking) so I am limited to Internet connection.

Philippe.
