Conda setup fails on Jetson Orin Nano Dev Kit

I followed instructions at Anaconda for Jetson Nano - #11 by mikechen6688 to set up conda on my Jetson Orin Nano 8GB Dev Kit. Specifically:

# use install path: $HOME/archiconda3
wget --quiet -O && \
    sh -b -p $HOME/archiconda3 && \
export PATH=$HOME/archiconda3/bin:$PATH
conda config --add channels gaiar && \
conda config --add channels conda-forge && \
conda config --add channels c4aarch64 && \
conda update -n base --all && \
conda install -y python=3.6.7 libiconv && \
conda install -y conda-build && \
conda install -y anaconda-client

This fails with the following message:

Preparing transaction: done
Verifying transaction: done
Executing transaction: failed
ERROR An error occurred while installing package 'conda-forge::asn1crypto-1.5.1-pyhd8ed1ab_0'.
FileNotFoundError(2, "No such file or directory: '/home/derek/archiconda3/bin/python3.6'")
Attempting to roll back.

Rolling back transaction: done

FileNotFoundError(2, "No such file or directory: '/home/derek/archiconda3/bin/python3.6'")

I see ‘/home/derek/archiconda3/bin/python3.7’ in the filesystem, but for some reason, the setup process is looking for python3.6.

Any tips on how I should go about resolving this is appreciated.


The comment is for Jetson Nano rather than Orin Nano.

Orin Nano by default (JetPack 5) uses Python 3.8.10.
Could you update the command to Python 3.8.10 to see if it can work?

conda install -y python=3.8.19 libiconv && \


Hi AastaLLL,

I did the following:

derek@ubuntu:~$ conda install -y python=3.8.19 libiconv && \

export PATH=$HOME/archiconda3/bin:$PATH
bash: conda: command not found
derek@ubuntu:~$ conda install -y python=3.8.19 libiconv
bash: conda: command not found
derek@ubuntu:~$ which conda
derek@ubuntu:~$ ~/archiconda3/bin/conda install -y python=3.8.19 libiconv
Solving environment: failed

PackagesNotFoundError: The following packages are not available from current channels:

  • python=3.8.19

Current channels:

Please advise what I should try next. Thanks.

Is there a complete instruction on how to set up conda on Jetson Orin Nano?

Thanks for the update.
Good to know it works now.
