My guess is it It looks like the issue is they do not have a Kodi template for "Ultimate_Blah_Blah" as the template you need to apply is for Vivid, Ubuntu 15.10, not Ultimate_Blah_Blah/Vivid. ... ystem-info

So I am guessing if you change the name back to Ubuntu, probably fix it, could be wrong, type
Code: Select all
lsb_release -a
and if Ultimate pops up, probably the issue.

I apoligise that I do not actually run Ultimate, so can not test.

Alternatively, you can just compile it ... _or_Ubuntu
