first of all, none of the kodi.binary-addons* packages are _needed_ to
make kodi be usable. You decide on your own, which one you actually
_need_. I for instance only have kodi.binary-addons-pvr.vuplus installed
in addition to the kodi package itself. You certainly also don't need
the kodi-devel package, unless you want to develop additional addons for
kodi yourself.

Wrt/ kodi.binary-addons-pvr.iptvsimple, it does not exist as it cannot
be built in our environment (has issues with rapidxml).
IIRC, kodi.binary-addons-vfs.sacd has been deprecated quite some time
ago and even got removed during the lifetime of kodi-18.9.

Yeah, probably because there are no upgrade candidates for the above two

If I were you, I'd first remove all installed kodi* packages. Then just
install kodi itself and really only those from the
kodi.binary-addons-vfs.sacd* front which you know you really want/need
