Errors installing JetPack 5.1.1 on Jetson Xavier - missing files


I am using SDK manager on a host Ubuntu 18.04 system and trying to install JetPack 5.1.1 onto a Jetson Xavier device. I get the following error:

File SYstem and OS - target_image: unable to open ‘/usr/src/linux-headers-5.10.104-tegra-ubuntu20.04_aarch64/kernel-5.10/include/uapi/linux/netfilter/xt_connmark.h.dpkg-new’: No such file or directory

Any suggestions as to what I can do to get round this?

Many thanks!

Please share full log from sdkmanger. There is a “export logs” button on sdkm.

No problem. Here’s the zip file. Thanks for your help!

SDKM_logs_JetPack_5.1.1_(rev._1) (71.0 KB)

Could you share what does your Linux_for_Tegra look like?

Yeah, sure. Here you go…

Sorry, I didn’t notice you don’t understand what I am talking about.

SDKM will install a directory to your host PC. Default path would be like ~/nvidia/

and there would be a folder with name “Linux_for_Tegra” inside.

Aha! I did wonder :-)

So that folder is here:

And there’s one folder inside called rootfs and that folder is empty.


Could you share me the result of “ls -al Linux_for_Tegra”?

and also ls -al Linux_for_Tegra/rootfs


Are you sure this is ubuntu 20.04 host ? The whole content in the directory was not installed.

Could you also share the installation path on your sdkmanager GUI? Screenshot and share it.

No, it’s definitely not 20.04. As I said in my first post, “I am using SDK manager on a host Ubuntu 18.04 system”

I assumed 18.04 was ok to use? If that’s not the case what are my options?

Otherwise, why would the SDK Manager be trying to use 20.04 if my system is 18.04?

I don’t see where this is shown on the SDK Manager?

Oh sorry. Please ignore my comment. Both 18.04 and 20.04 are fine.

Just screenshot your sdkmanager GUI before it starts to flash.

On STEP 2 ? With the Details tab showing? (as opposed to the Terminal tab)

If you don’t know where, just screenshot everything from the first one until where you got stuck… I remember there should be something like HW path something in one of them…

I don’t have any computer to run sdkmanager for now. So cannot check for you.

Yeah, looks like Target HW Image Folder.

I have it set up to use an external hard drive

Is your /media/malc/Backup equal to your home directory (~/) ?
