Unable to install any addon from the LibreElec repo

  • I am trying to install the TVheadend Server 4.2 addon but I am unable. I have also tried other addons in the repo but I get the same issue. I have tested other addons in other repos and these install correctly and I have check internet connectivity and I am having no issues there.


    I am using the 9.2 beta after I upgraded from 9.0 as I thought this might fix the issue.


    This is the relevant part of my log file

    I am using a 86_64 device.


    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Thanks for your input but that particular thread suggests that the user wasn’t using an official build and that is why they were unable to access.
    Yeah he download path looks to right but is still timing out.

  • I have the same issue. I have upgraded from an RPi2 to an RPi4 and used LibreELEC's built-in backup/restore option.


    When I now try to install an addon from the 9.2 repository I get this error:

    2020-02-29 12:50:32.828 T:2342974320 ERROR: Requested path https://addons.libreelec.tv/9.…ream.adaptive-2.4.2.1.zip not found in known repository directories

    2020-02-29 12:50:32.828 T:2342974320 ERROR: CAddonInstallJob[inputstream.adaptive]: failed to resolve addon install source path


    When I copy and paste the URL from the error message and SSH into the RPi4 I am able to download the zip using wget and install the addon from the zip file. So the network connections seems fine.


    What is going wrong here?

  • This is the relevant part of my log file

    We always prefer full log files, provided via a pastebin website.

    Just to keep our forum server neat and tidy.

  • strange, the file is there and the rights look also okay


    you should try to manual refresh the repo, there is a new version available since yesterday

  • Maybe it's because you didn't enable "unknown sources" in settings> system>add-ons Like the direction say.


    Says it right there in the log. "not found in known repository directories"

    Edited once, last by donbrew ().

  • Yeah I think the backup/restore process in LibreELEC also restores the LibreELEC repository and then points to the RPi2 URL instead of the RPi4 URL.


    After updating the repository manually I can now install addons again.

  • After updating the repository manually I can now install addons again.

    Pardon me, but how did you update the repo? I am having the exact same issue and I can't figure out how to fix it.

  • Now I feel stupid. I was expecting some extremely complicated solution I didn't think of such a simple one. Thanks a lot!
