What dependencies are missing?

I am using the Ayufans Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Minimal 64bit (arm64) [microSD / eMMC Boot] [0.8.3] on an SD card.

When you install kodi (sudo apt install kodi), this is what Ubuntu says:

Reading dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have 
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable 
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
kodi : Depends: kodi-x11 (< 2:18.4+git20190831.2224-final-0bionic.1~) but it is not installable
          Depends: libshairplay0 but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have broken packages.

What can I do to fix it  Wink Thanks

btw it give the same message on the mate build too. I am about to try Manjaro to see what happens. Thanks for your help on this I am still learning Linux but I love it Smile
