That wizard for sure is dead. You may be trying to install addons that are defunct. Entering a URL is for a source, not for an addon.
Example, our source is
Entering this in your file manager will allow you to install from zip and then install from repo. It you get such error, it means you have a typo or the source is no longer valid. Try entering that URl in the address bar of your browser. If it is valid, you will see all the repos that should be accessible to you via Kodi.

If you click on the above link, you will see what I mean.
