Kodi ad-ons not installing

When I try to add an app to kodi, I get the message “unable to connect” Couldn’t retrieve directory information. This could be due to the network not being connected. Would you like to add it anyway?

How do I fix this so I can add apps to Kodi?

Hi @bob06905
Welcome to the community
What device are you using and what add-on are you wanting to install?

I am using a Fire Cube, and I get the same message with any add ons to the cube

@bob06905
Did you ensure unknown sources was ticked to active?
Also check the url’s are typed in correctly.

I have tried several add-ons and get the same message for all of them, they are typed correctly. I will double-check that unknown sources were activated.

So on my Fire Cube, once I installed an add-on, I had to go and tick on unknown sources for each add-on. I believe this is due to Fire OS v.7 that comes with the Cube.

I just factory reset my fire cube to factory settings and I still get the message. Unable to connect
"Couldn’t retrieve directory information. This could be due to the network not being connected. Would you like to add it anyway?
Does anyone know how to fix this?

How do I tick on unknown sourses after the addon is installed?

Hi @bob06905
Here you go:
Settings > My Fire TV” > Developer options > Apps from Unknown Sources and > Turn On
Do this for each app you download and install.
