Covenant Not Working/Error/Issues

 

Failed to Install Dependency

Covenant add-on is available on many repositories, but there are only few where it actually works. There are repositories where you install Covenant add-on but it gives an error ‘Failed to Install Dependency’. As a result, you are unable to install Covenant on Kodi. Some of the add-ons contain Trojan viruses and you may accidentally install them through these repositories which is a bigger risk.

 

Solution

To fix this problem, you can install Covenant from the official Colossus repository which is safer than any other repositories. The installation process that has been discussed in this blog follows Colossus repository.

 

Wrapping it Up

Covenant Kodi add-on is the official replacement for Exodus which has been the face of free movies and TV shows streaming since many years. Exodus fans are more likely to switch to the newer version of Exodus i.e. Covenant because of the instability of the Exodus and its many broken links that have caused fury amongst its fans. In this installation guide, we provide detailed steps on how to install Covenant on Kodi that will allow you to watch free movies and TV shows.

  2. wilby says:

    Hi Wilby how can you take off old zip files that don’t go through

  3. Nick Michaelson says:

    Hello Wilby, to remove the old zip files, you need to Open Kodi > Settings icon > File Manager > Here you will see a list of repositories, old and new ones. Right Click on the repo that you need to remove and click on Remove source. It will remove the source.

  4. Joe Batoha says:

    When I try to add source to install colossus it says it could’nt retrieve directory information. This could be due to the network not being connected. Would you like to add it anyway? Nothing happens. Any suggestions?

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hello Joe, the error message for ‘Couldn’t receive directory information’ occurs because there is something wrong with repo link. Are you sure you are correctly inserting the link? Sometimes Kodi users do not insert (/) SLASH key at the end of the link or source which is why this error occurs. Try again and let us know.

    • Anna says:

      Followed video to install Covenant from Colussus Repo but when adding source name, I am getting the following message : “Could not retrieve information. This could be due to the network not being connected.” My internet is on and working. I have entered the correctPlease help.

      Anna

      • Nick Michaelson says:

        Hello Anna the error which you are receiving i.e. Couldn’t retrieve information is because the repository link is not inserted correctly. Paste it exactly as this: http://tinyurl.com/colossusrepo/ But make sure you do not add any space before or after the link. Do remember to put a slash key (/) at the end of the link just as I did in the above link.

  5. James says:

    Nick,
    I’m having the same issue and have done everything correctly. The link appears to be bad. Do you know where I can find a correct one?

  6. Malcolm says:

    I enabled to download and specified a location to go to, but I right click and nothing happens. any help please.

      • Ace says:

        I’m also trying to download movies from Covenant. In Exodus when we long press on movie link, it shows the option to download the same. But when we long press, nothing happens.

    • Arthur Lowe says:

      I have same issue – your guide works great, but when I enable the download option in the app settings, I don’t get the option to download an individual file rather than streaming it when I right click over the file.

  7. Jenny says:

    Hi
    Just downloaded covenant but there are only 2 films showing under 2017 and only a few in 2016. Is this correct?
    Thanks Jenny

  8. Del says:

    I have tried every exodus add on tonight that the can find, but none of them work? Very ? It either puts all the add ons in but will not let me run them, or in the case of this one, covenant fails to appear in the list

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hello Del, may I ask from which repository are you trying to install Covenant? You can find the Covenant add-on from Colossus Repo. Watch the video tutorial to download Covenant. We have gone through the entire installation steps and it was working fine. Let me know your status.

  9. Alec says:

    Hi Nick, having an issue with the new link as well. The first link simply does not work after being entered correctly multiple times. The second one isn’t for Colossus/Covenant it’s for Mobdro. I decided to download it anyways and in Mobdro it fails to stream any videos. Do you have a third link meant for Covenant? Thanks

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hello Alec, which link are you trying to insert it in Add Source? Because I have only provided ‘one’ link in this blog. Please paste your link here if you can and we’ll help you.

  10. Laughing says:

    If the link isn’t working to the repo it’s because of the shitty tinyurl link doesn’t work all the time….why not just add the original links so people can download directly:

    https://archive.org/download/repository.colossus-999.999.2/

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hello, yes you are right you can also paste this link to the Add Source on Kodi. The link that we provided also works perfectly. It would re-direct to the same link.

  27. Bobby says:

    Hello Nick you did great job with your tutorial. I was just curious if I should uninstall all the exodus and elysium before I try the covenant download.

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Thanks Bobby. Its up to you if you want to uninstall the two addons. But most probably Exodus will shut down, and Elysium is causing problems for Kodi users. So its better to uninstall both add-ons.

  28. Bobby says:

    I was able to get covenant working but the hd movies won’t play…any ideas?

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      hmm…That means you probably have to wait until Covenant finds an HD quality video. Are you having this problem with all of the movies or just the recent ones that were released in 2017?
