This error is due to a failure in the repository, or the repository source. It occurs when the repository source is gone or has been shut down. Apart from that, this error may also occur due to human error of typing incorrect repository URL.



To avoid human error, it is required of Kodi users to check if there is an end slash (/) at the end of the repository URL. You need to type a slash (/) key at the end of the URL to avoid this error.

But how to know when this error occurs due to shutdown of repository? You can check whether if the repository is working, simply type the URL into your web browser. If it opens the link then it means the repository is working.


Check Log for More Information

This error may drive anyone crazy. The reason why this error occurs is because the add-on is longer available, or the content is geo-restricted.



If the add-on is no longer available, it means it has been shut down. If its geo-restricted, you can get Kodi VPN to solve the problem. VPN bypasses geo-restrictions and you can easily stream videos on Kodi.
