Failure in installing TensorRT in Docker Image


With a local TensorRT debian package, I get the “compressed data is corrupt” error during install (sometimes)


Trying to create a docker image with
Ubuntu 18.04
Docker 19.03
GPU Quadro M1200
Driver Version: 440.82

Relevant Files


Steps To Reproduce

Here is my Dockerfile:

FROM nvidia/cuda:10.2-base-ubuntu18.04

Update Ubuntu Software repository

RUN apt update

Disable Prompt During Packages Installation

ARG DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive

ARG TENSORRT=nv-tensorrt-repo-ubuntu1804-cuda10.0-trt5.1.5.0-ga-20190427_1-1_amd64.deb
ARG TENSORRT_KEY=/var/nv-tensorrt-repo-cuda10.0-trt5.1.5.0-ga-20190427/

WORKDIR /project


Rename the ML repo to something else so apt doesn’t see it

RUN apt clean
RUN mv /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nvidia-ml.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nvidia-ml.list.bkp &&
dpkg -i ./$TENSORRT &&
apt-key add $TENSORRT_KEY &&
apt-get update &&
apt-get install -y tensorrt

On the last step, I get the following errors. These do not occur always. Sometimes they work and sometimes they fail:

Step 10/14 : RUN mv /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nvidia-ml.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nvidia-ml.list.bkp && dpkg -i ./$TENSORRT && apt-key add $TENSORRT_KEY && apt-ge
t update && apt-get install -y tensorrt

Hi @sjain1, Kindly do a fresh install using latest TRT version from the link below.

It is suggested to use use TRT NGC containers to avoid system level dependencies.
