1.Uninstall older versions:
sudo apt-get remove docker docker-engine containerd runc

sudo apt-get update

curl -fsSL | sudo apt-key add -

sudo add-apt-repository
“deb [arch=arm64]
$(lsb_release -cs)

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install docker-ce docker-ce-cli

1.Directly: how to solve the problem above?
2.JetPack version: # R28 (release), REVISION: 1.0, GCID: 9436269, BOARD: t186ref, EABI: aarch64, DATE: Fri Jul 28 17:04:29 UTC 2017
How to get JetPack version with the format “JetPack d.d”
Any relations with the VERSION?
3.Is it necessary to upgrade JetPack to the latest version when develop with JETSON TX2?
I haven’t done that.

Hi 1101784344,

The NVIDIA docker support on Jetson platform from R32.2, please upgrade your system to the latest version through JetPack, you can find relevant information from:

Here is tutorial for your reference:


Hello, kayccc,

I have a trouble with LOGIN. After creating a NVIDIA account, I can now login from the web by my social account, but I can’t login by email and password. Meanwhile, the SDKMANEGER only has the way of email and password. So, I now can’t login the SDKMANEGER and thus I can’t move on. JetPack is not to be upgraded. Any solutions?

I have learned that JetPack4.2.1 itself include docker, but I have no idea what’s the difference between this “docker” and the one I mentioned before( Are they compatible? What about so-called “nvidia-docker”? How can I distinguish and how do I choose to use them?

Another question, I have found methods of installing JetPack by .run file naming “”. Is it suitable for me, accounting for the docker support?

Thank you very much.

Hi 1101784344,

Please follow to see if can resolve the installation issue.

Regarding the docker-ce, that should be for host PC, not for Tegra devices.
