    Are you sure it isn't the Smoke detectors, downstairs lighting, and upstairs sockets?

    As you say you are no electrician & cannot work out the problem it is difficult for anyone to say from your pics. other than something is not as it should be & you should call an electrician in.

    Use the oven to force a trip, and then


    (Without resetting anything)

    So we can see what has tripped.
