Can TX2 Jetson 18.04 Ubuntu OS Be Upgraded to Ubuntu 20.04 to check for ROS2 Foxy Fitzroy Support?

Hello. We received a Jetson TX2 development board. After boot it appears to be an Ubuntu OS version 18.04.03. We are investigating using ROS2 Foxy Fitzroy on it so we want to check if we can upgrade Ubuntu on the TX2 to version 20.04? If so, is there a link or document outlining the process NVIDIA recommends? Thank you. Tammy

Sorry to tell that only Ubuntu 18.04 can support with TX2.

Thank you. Is there any plan from NVIDIA to support Ubuntu 20.04 in the near future in 2022 either on TX2 or a similar target board? Thank you again. Tammy

NO, please refer to Jetson Software Roadmap for 2H-2021 and 2022 - Jetson & Embedded Systems / Jetson TX2 - NVIDIA Developer Forums

FYI, Orin and Xavier have a developer preview out now with Ubuntu 20.04. These are newer products though. This might not do much for you, but if you are using an NX module layout, then you might be able to switch to an NX using the same carrier board (but new device tree).
