Kodi 19 Matrix has been released along with many changes.
The most significant change is that many add-ons are currently not working.
The add-ons are not working because Kodi 19 uses Python 3 instead of Python 2 it had used for older versions.
Until the add-ons are updated to use Python 3, they will not work with the new Kodi 19 Matrix.

Currently, only several add-ons work with Kodi 19 Matrix.
This is sure to change as other add-ons become compatible with the new Kodi version.
We are testing which add-ons are working and not working and will update as they are found.
There are also Kodi 19 Builds available that come with working Kodi 19 add-ons such as Xenon Matrix.
Should You Update to Kodi 19 Matrix?
If you have a working Kodi setup it is not recommended to update until more add-ons become available.
If Kodi is updated to the new Matrix, many add-ons will no longer work.

Official Statement from Kodi Team
Addons and Scrapers
Python comes in for some major changes in Kodi 19. Because the old Python 2.7 has gone out of support, we’ve finally made the wholesale move to Python 3 and ported our addons across. Much of the community has come with us, so, hopefully, your favourite addons will still function, but we’re at the mercy of third-party contributors to update their work.
Kodi 19 replaces the old XML metadata scrapers with new default Python for movies and TV shows; there are also new Python scrapers for music, Generic Album Scraper and Generic Artist Scraper. Binary addons in general get improvements to system documentation, cleaned up settings dialogs, and better help text.
