Error installing kodi-pvr-hts

Hi, I am using dietpi on my odroid C2. Installed kodi by using the dietpi -launcher. Now I’m trying to install kodi-pvr-hts and I get an archive conflict:

Any suggestions?

Could it be the backport issue?

I understand there could be some instability because of backports. Probably Dietpi for C2 depends on backports out of the box. I didn’t add additional sources:
cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
meveric-all-C2.list meveric-all-testing.list meveric-jessie-main.list
meveric-all-main.list meveric-jessie-backports.list owncloud.list
root@DietPi:~# cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/meveric-jessie-backports.list
deb jessie backports

Is there a know issue with a backport for C2 that can explain my issue?

is meveric-jessie the 64bit version dietpi is using?

might be a “sloppy distro”?
sloppy distributions

To guarantee a clean upgrade path from a previously stable distribution to the next stable it is not allowed to upload packages from the current testing to that backport distribution. To allow some newer packages for those systems we create so called sloppy distributions. For oldstable (jessie) packages from the current testing (stretch) are allowed to be uploaded to jessie-backports-sloppy.

You can use it exactly as the current backports distribution, just add another line to your sources.list and install new packages via apt-get -t jessie-backports-sloppy install or apt-get -t stretch-backports install

one of the dietpi dev guys will probably have to chime in…

Thanks for you explaination! I don’t want to break my installation by doing too much experimenting :wink:

Hope a DietPi developer can chime in indeed.

Can a DietPi developer have a look at this topic please?

Thanks! :slight_smile:
