E: Unable to locate package nvidia-jetpack-runtime

JetPack Runtime - Guide to Minimizing Jetson Disk Usage (nvidia-ai-iot.github.io)

I encountered this error when executing the command in step 2 of the link above.
The commands are:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install nvidia-jetpack-runtime

The error is:
dw@dw:~$ sudo apt update

How do I solve it?

Hi lipengbo,

The nvidia-jetpack-runtime package is available in the apt for the already flashed jetson:

According to your link, this is meant to install the Nvidia packages directly in the Jetson instead of having the Jetpack flash them.

Alternatively, you can manually copy this from the pre-downloaded binaries provided by the Jetpack.

scp ~/Downloads/nvidia/sdkm_downloads/*.deb nvidia@192.168.55.1:~
# Then in the tegra
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
