Installation/Setup Issue


We have some Jetson Xavier NX boards that have been flashed with Jetpack, but without any of the components (e.g. cuda drivers, deepstream, etc) .

Jetpack Version:

nvidia@tegra-ubuntu:~$ cat /etc/nv_tegra_release
# R32 (release), REVISION: 6.1, GCID: 27863751, BOARD: t186ref, EABI: aarch64, DATE: Mon Jul 26 19:36:31 UTC 2021

We have followed the steps outlined in this link:

to install the components via the package manager, however we are getting an error when we run the commands:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install nvidia-jetpack
nvidia@tegra-ubuntu:~$ sudo apt install nvidia-jetpack
Reading package lists... Done

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 nvidia-jetpack : Depends: nvidia-container (= 4.6-b199) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

This error does not affect all of our boards, only the ones where we have downloaded some packages/changed some ppa’s before running the install jetpack command.

Does nvidia have any advice on returning the boards to a known state where the install commands would work without error?

Unfortunately, re-installing Jetpack to these boards is not an option, we require a cli/package based solution.

You may try to clean cache and install DeepStream SDK 6.0:

$ rm .cache/gstreamer-1.0/registry.aarch64.bin
$ sudo apt install deepstream-6.0

If it does not work, would suggest do clean re-flash.


Thanks for your reply, I’m following up on behalf of my colleague.

I have tried the above recommendation of clearing the cache and installing DeepStream SDK 6.0 which installed successfully however the issue persists and we are unable to install nvidia-jetpack.

Is there any possible way to resolve this without reflashing the device? We do not have physical access to the devices as they have been installed at international sites.
