Thank you rflores2323 for your reply, I did change the user and group ownership for the whole XBMC files and subfolders to mobile, but it only worked with "XBMC Subtitle" add-on, for the rest of the add-ons and the repository, its still giving me "Installation Failed".

Remove the addon that fails to install and reinstall it.

It will work and you got the latest version. It's a workaround for now.

Well, it worked, but only for the add-ons, i still can not update the add-on repository ( repository.googlecode.xbmc-addons )
is the anyway to download the new release (zip files) and install it manually ?
