Kodi 16 has been released today, so it's a bit early for it to hit the repos.
You will not see it in Raspbian Jessie repos (due to update policy of Debian / Raspbian).
It may be available from the RPF repo sometime soon (tm).

Sp you have a couple of options:
* hope that somebody will create packages that you can download install
- Wait for it to become available from the RPF repository
* Switch to Openelec / OSMC. They will probably release a version with Kodi 16 fairly soon.
* build Kodi yourself.

Thats a little bit disappointing. I just recently switched from OSMC to Jessie to have all the benefits of Raspbian and also to have possibility to open Epiphany and surf. Hope to see upgrade soon. :(

it would be useful to get the Raspbian package updated (with joystick support compiled in) - there is a Kodi 16 package via viewtopic.php?f=66&t=109088 (towards the end of the threads - look for for the pipplware repository).

use the instructions from that post. their distro/site is in Portuguese - Kodi will work in English.
