    Welcome to the bleeding edge.

    Did you upload the kodi logs to the Kodi website as suggested to get help there?
    https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=288153 thread explains.

    Did you install from the PPA? https://kodi.wiki/view/HOW-TO:Instal..._Team_Kodi_PPA

    The Kodi package in the Ubuntu default repo is in the universe component, which is not supported by neither Ubuntu nor Kodi officially.

    Re: Kodi does not work in Ubuntu 24.04

    Team Kodi has officially announced their retirement of the PPA:
    https://kodi.tv/article/ubuntu-team-...ially-retired/

    And per the HOW-TO:
    "Please note that currently the Team Kodi PPA is not maintained due to the previous sole maintainer stepping away from the responsibility.For now the only options are building from source, using Flatpak or a distro such as Debian which includes Kodi in their distribution."

    I don't think the PPA has been usable since Kinetic. I see Wolfgang pushed some changes a couple of weeks ago, but they were for Jammy and Focal.

    I don't actually use Kodi directly. I run OSMC (a specialized Kodi install) on a Raspberry Pi3/Pi4. Works great almost always.

    Kodi here works just as good as it ever has:
    Code:
     apt policy kodi
    kodi:
      Installed: 2:20.5+dfsg-1build2
      Candidate: 2:20.5+dfsg-1build2
      Version table:
     *** 2:20.5+dfsg-1build2 500
            500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu noble/universe amd64 Packages
            100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
    With realization of one's own potential and self-confidence in one's ability, one can build a better world.

    Re: Kodi does not work in Ubuntu 24.04

    Unfortunately this bug is well documented (and for commenters saying it does not exist, please refrain to tell such things)
    Here is the issue in Kodi github: https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/issues/24069

    Since Ubuntu Noble uses Python 3.12, we are facing to the problem. The solution: noble is updated to use another python version (I don't believe it will happen)
    Better solution; Universe repo update to Kodi Omega (unfortunately since Noble is LTS, I don't believe it will happen too)

    So, we will have to wait Ubuntu 24.10 for a working deb Kodi in Ubuntu

    Otherwise, you can download flatpak Omega kodi in the kodi official site .

    if you install synaptic from the app centre its a deb file not a snap.
    kodi is available from there ..
