    Hi ,
    I keep getting a generic error message when trying to install add-on repository (or wizard) from zip file (after adding source to the file manager).
    I have done this many times before and it stopped working all of a sudden!
    I also tried resetting to factory from the recovery menu with no success.

    any help appreciated!
    Thanks,
    Omer

    Have you enabled Unknown Sources in Kodi Settings?

    It might help if you tell us what these repositories/urls are!

    The action i am trying to do is very comon- installing kodi add ons.
    For instanse installing SuperRepo by 1. adding a source in kodi of the following url: http://srp.nu/
    2. Install from zip
    Again , i have done this many time before. On one of my minix strimers im am now getting an error while doing that

    Yes it is clear what you are trying to do!
    I just thought if you shared the repos then one could try at ones own end with said device. ;)

    I tried srp on my U1 with Kodi 17.3 and could install from zip!

    Thanks Villa! I assumed that would be the case. This is a very popular add on repo...
    So any ideas what would help me recover my minix? Is there a more fubdemental way to reset than Reset to Factory feature via the recovery menu?
    Thanks

    I can't see how there could be an issue if you've performed a Factory reset and reinstalled Kodi.

    Have you tried downloading the zip to the device and installing direct from internal storage?

    That's exactly what I did this morning :)) and it worked! really odd why it does not work the other way...
    Anyway , I can live with this workaround for now...
    thank you all!

    It's not really a workaround it's, IMO, the better/easier way to do it! :)
