Clearly, seeing as the fix is an updated libcurl/curl package.

That said - the site is indexed well enough that it came up while searching for other folks that had the same issue that presented itself to me. The only reason for posting and editing is in the hope that someone will find it if they decide that they'll install XBMC/KODI on {Fedora 21}, or some other broken distribution (due to {lib,}curl) today and run into the same issue, and subsequently turn to Google for an answer.

I'd even go so far as suggesting adding a [Solved] to the thread title maybe?

this is my first post in this forum and i'd like to give u all a step by step guide to downgrade curl on your rpi.

Download the curl version suggested in the first post


Remove new version (with bug) ** only single package witout any dependencies

sudo dpkg -r --force-depends curl
sudo dpkg -r --force-depends libcurl3-gnutls
sudo dpkg -r --force-depends libcurl3

Install the old version

sudo dpkg -i libcurl3_7.37.1-1_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i libcurl3-gnutls_7.37.1-1_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i curl_7.37.1-1_armhf.deb

Put packages on hold to preventig upgrade

dpkg --get-selections |grep curl
echo "curl hold" | sudo dpkg --set-selections
echo "libcurl3 hold" | sudo dpkg --set-selections
echo "libcurl3-gnutls hold" | sudo dpkg --set-selections
dpkg --get-selections |grep curl

Remove hold

echo "curl install" | sudo dpkg --set-selections
echo "libcurl3 install" | sudo dpkg --set-selections
echo "libcurl3-gnutls install" | sudo dpkg --set-selections

that's all
bye bye and good night

apologize for mistakes, my english needs improvements Tongue
