Error instaling VisionWorks via SDK Manager. JetPack version 4.5.1


Installing VisionWorks fails. JetPack 4.5.1, latest SDK Manager


10:23:07 ERROR: VisionWorks on Host - host: [error]: unarchive the package failure: reading file in zip archive: /home/raff/nvidia/nvidia_sdk/JetPack_4.5.1_Linux/documentations/VisionWorks/index.html: creating new file: open /home/raff/nvidia/nvidia_sdk/JetPack_4.5.1_Linux/documentations/VisionWorks/index.html: permission denied
10:23:07 ERROR: VisionWorks on Host - host: command terminated with error


  1. Change permission of the file, eg:
    sudo chmod 664 /home/raff/nvidia/nvidia_sdk/JetPack_4.5.1_Linux/documentations/VisionWorks/index.html

  2. Retry

Root Cause

The permissions on the file inside the zip package is incorrect (read only, or mode 444)

Hi raff,

Please try change below folder owner and check again.

$ sudo chown <username:username> JetPack_4.5.1_Linux

Thanks @carolyuu, but that doesn’t work. The problem isn’t file ownership, it’s file permission, and it’s only on the index.html file which is read-only. If you check my original post, I already have a fix. The purpose of the post is to draw attention to the issue so that:

  1. It can be fixed in the next version of the package
  2. Googling the error message will find this solution
