Do you need to use Ubuntu? Why not use LibreElec? It simplifies things a lot.

Thanks for tip @mcelliott As for as I understood LibreElec is to build up a HTPC which is not me intention. Just want to learn more about Kodi and its features. Maybe later I switch to a Linux powered HTPC witch Kodi, but not with this system. Is Ubuntu not supported anymore? Why is the mediaportal addon not in the standard package like it is on Windows systems?
please provide the output of
apt policy kodi kodi-pvr-mediaportal-tvserver
Honestly, I just use it, so I can't answer your questions. But I can confirm that MediaPortal works fine on LibreElec.

Thanks for the offer @wsnipex.

I played with nightly builds and compiled the addon myself in the meantime - with no sucess ...
But(!) while reproducing the initial scenario and re-installation of kodi and the addon it worked without the problem described.
I cannot help anyone with answering why this problem is solved now. I did exactly the same steps as described in my first post. Maybe anyone repaired the package in the meantime.

With using a nightly build repository it works - returning back to the stable repository I have the problems described in the first post.

@wsnipex Does this help?
the addon for Krypton fails to build.
I see there is a newer version in the pvr.mediaportal.tvserver repo, but still points to an older version that fails.
anything I can do to fix this? Is there a workaround?
I've backported the  build fix to the Krypton branch, but @wsnipex should probably trigger a PPA build for Krypton before it is available.

thanks, now it built.
