Following the Steps will teach you how you can get a Notification when there is an update available so that it’s your choice whether to update to the latest version of Kodi or stick to the same version.

This way you can protect your firestick from crashes and bugs in the latest version released.
Step by Step procedure to Fix Auto Update Kodi
Go to ‘Setting‘ on the top left corner of the screen and choose ‘system settings’
Now navigate to add-ons tab and click on updates
The system will show a pop up containing three options.
a.Install updates Automatically.b.Notify, But do not install updates. c.Never check for updates
By default, it will be set to Install Updates Automatically
As we don’t want to auto-update Kodi. we have to choose “Notify, but do not install updates” and click on “OK”.
Doing this, you will not get an update on an automatic basis. You will be Notified of the updates available when there is an Update.
Go to ‘Setting Tab‘ on the top left corner of the screen and choose add-ons
The system now displays available add-ons on your firestick
Select the Addon you wish to enable/disable auto update
On clicking on selected addon pop up with Information Icon Displays.
Then click on Information icon to See Addon Information
Here, check or uncheck auto-update based our your preference.
This way you can Fix auto-updating of individual Kodi Addons on your firestick.If you are setting update preference for individual Addons you can prevent Addons being stuck when an update is available. So make sure you Enable update preference as “Notify but do not update” to make sure your Kodi firestick is working fine with all the add-ons.
