Not sure about if there are builds available for that arm board, but with Ubuntu on x86 hardware you need to install the Kodi PPA to get the latest Kodi releases.

You'd be better with a raspberry pi in terms of Kodi support.

If it's Ubuntu 16.04 which runs on that banana pi, then just do the following:

Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install kodi

The normal Ubuntu repos only ship Kodi 15.2. To use the latest stable Kodi release, you have to use our PPA.

Don't expect to much support for that if you are facing issues.

The RPi3 might have been a better choice.

The PPA doesn't ship any ARM packages, so that won't work.

And if it shipped it would not work either. The above hardware uses a proprietary blob that has no support in any OSS programm that is not heavily patched ...
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.

You would have been better to research before buying.
