Hello,

I can't edit a source to be able to specify the folder type and update the media library accordingly, what should I do?

THANKS

Edit an existing source, or add a new source?
To edit, maybe this wiki page might help... https://kodi.wiki/view/Changing_Scrapers
Add a new source.

Yea, because that is for editing an existing source.
To create a new source, maybe this helps... https://kodi.wiki/view/HOW-TO:Create_Video_Library and you can probably jump to step 6 if all your media is correctly named

Correct. You cannot scrape media from a uPnP source. uPnP is it's own library.
You create a library from direct access network protocols like SMB, NFS etc.
Your image clearly shows a uPnP source, so scrapers don't work there. You just use the uPnP tree that is provided by whatever UPnP server you are using.
