Depository dependencys not working on Coreelec 9.2.5


I just installed Coreelec 9.2.5 (Kodi 18.9) on my new X96Max+ and it looks like it is all working

I however seem to have a problem installing the Jellyfin addon,

I used the same methode I dit for my previous coreelec install.

first manualy install the jellyfin repository (that works fine)

but than when I go to install the jellyfin addon, it refuses to get any dependency’s , I have manualy installed the first one, but than it also wont get the second one :frowning:

message in my log ;

Other addons from the build in depository’s seem to get there dependency’s just fine.

Is there a new jellyfin depository installer to fix this ?

Let me know please,

Thank you,


Those of us doing Kodi dev and re-installing a bunch have all seen this a few times, and the only real explanation we’ve found is that sometimes Kodi’s addon mirrors get a little out of whack. Which is a bummer since it means there’s nothing we can do ourselves to prevent it. Usually waiting a few hours should let it go through correctly. Sometimes if you nuke the ~/.kodi directory of your install and try again, the next time it reaches out it will pull from a different mirror and work properly.

Thank you very much,

As you predicted, it just works today without changing anything :slight_smile:


but happy it now works,

thank you,
