Well it was time to look on Google for a fix. It was quite a search but I finally found the fix.
search for 'wget'
The click on each of the 'wget' links, this will download those file to your selected directory.
The don't do what the author says next instead go to the directory where you downloaded the files and type:
sudo dpkg --install python-openssl_16.2.
and then do
sudo dpkg --install python-cryptography_
Then start 'kodi' it should work now.
The downloads and installs two python library file for 'crypto' and the 'openssl' update.
This was a long hard trek but I finally got 'kodi' to work again. I hope this help someone.
