From the howto given, do the following:
sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
sudo  ppa-purge ppa:wsnipex/vaapi
sudo ppa-purge ppa:wsnipex/mesa
sudo ppa-purge ppa:wsnipex/xbmc-fernetmenta-master

Now do the ubuntu release upgrade. After the reboot do:
sudo apt-get install deborphan
sudo apt-get remove --purge `deborphan`
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:wsnipex/vaapi
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:wsnipex/xbmc-fernetmenta-master
# Yes no mesa ppa is needed anymore
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Now to make sure nothing is missing, do the install command again:
sudo apt-get install ssh python-software-properties software-properties-common xorg alsa-utils mesa-utils git-core librtmp1 lirc libmad0 lm-sensors libmpeg2-4 avahi-daemon libnfs8 libva1 vainfo libva-intel-vaapi-driver linux-firmware dbus-x11 openbox pastebinit

sudo apt-get install kodi kodi-bin

After a
sudo reboot

Everything should be fine.

Thank fritsch, very helpful, as always! I will proceed accordingly!

One more question: I have two friends for whom I installed the system on n3150, they do not know a lot about all this. They are on Vivid, and they do a dist-upgrade few times a week. Will they brake their Kodi if they don't upgrade to Wily? Or it would be better if I do the upgrade to Wily for them asap?
