Python update to fix Kodi on linux (Ubuntu and mint)

I had issues with my Kodi 17.6 on linux. I have noticed errors involving cryptography and ffi. Here is the procedure that I followed to fix it.
Open a Terminal and do the following:

 sudo apt-get install build-essential libssl-dev libffi-dev python-dev python-pip

After its done then install cryptography for python

pip install cryptography

It will prompt to install update pip BUT DONT DO THAT IT WILL BREAK THINGS.

  1. Thank You!!! I’ve been trying to update my Python to get rid of an error message in Kodi for weeks.
    This is the ONLY thing I found that actually worked. GREAT job!!!
