Why do you think you need a zip file?

Android only installs .apks. not .zips.

An apk is actually a zip file, although one with additional requirements on the files it must contain and their structure

Believe you're talking about upgrading your firmware, not Kodi.

For Kodi you just need to download the .apk and install. If you get "apk not installed" its most likely because your device does not meet the minimum Android version which is Android 5.

If your device does not meet the minimum Android version, then you need to either upgrade your firmware (ask your manufacture/seller, this is not a general Android forum) or use Kodi 16 if there is no firmware update for your device.

Yes, you can simple make a .apk a .zip by changing the extension. But a .zip is not recognized by Android as a installalble file.
