Are you manually downloading the tar, or using the Settings addon to update?

The #0318 tar file on the server is correct - I just downloaded it, verified the sha256 checksum, extracted the contents, verified the md5 checksums. This is likely to be a corrupted download, or hardware issue (memory error? Try running memtest86+ or similar).

You can use the sha256 checksum from the release post to verify the tar download if downloading manually.

Note that every new tar file is automatically tested by being deployed to a real device which is upgraded, and the upgraded device is then verified to ensure the upgrade succeeded and that Kodi has started successfully. Then and only then the new tar file is uploaded to the server along with a checksum to ensure whatever is uploaded is received correctly. I'm not saying this process is foolproof (and delayed Kodi crash bugs won't be detected), but there are some checks along the way to ensure as much as possible that a corrupt tar or a tar that results in a non-booting system, or Kodi not starting, is not uploaded.
