Your topic was posted in the wrong category. I am moving this to the Jetson AGX category for visibility.

Hi awatef.edhib,

Are you using the devkit or custom board for AGX Xavier?

Are you using standalone Ubuntu 16.04 as your host PC for SDK Manager?

Please help to provide the full flash log for further check.

Hi KevinFFF,
YES, I’m using devkit
YES, i’m using standalone Ubuntu 16.04 as my host PC for SDK Manager.
And i flashed before tx2 and xavier (jetpack 4.3) with the same host PC with SUCCESS.

Thanks for your information.
We still need flash log for further check.

Do you confirm that your host have enough space for SDK component?
What’s the current available space on your host PC?

$df -h

Do you also confirm your host PC have network access?

I have 3 Go space in my laptop.
for the installation i put an external disk (ssd with 200Go free space).
Yes my PC have network access.

3 GB would not be enough for SDK component.

If you connect an external disk for your host PC to install SDK components, you should make sure all packages are installed to this disk. Is this external disk mounted as rootfs of your laptop?

Hi KevinFFF,
I retried the flashing process and i mounted my external disk with (sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt).
Now i getting this error

It seems you are installing SDK components currently.
It is not necessary for a Jetson device to boot up, you could also install them after boot up with apt command.

Have you flashed the board and boot up successfully?

I guess the installation is crashed because even when i try to access the card via tty2 it shows me the following error

It seems your installation corrupted, but you can boot successfully and enter into desktop…

Please provide the full flash log from SDKM for further check.

This the log file

It seems L4T flash process completed.

Do you have more than one Jetson device connecting to your host PC?

Have you formatted the external storage as ext4 before use?
I’ve found the similar issue about “/usr/bin/sudo must be owned by uid 0
Reflash of Jetson AGX to upgrade ubuntu version, unable to "install SDK componenets on your ... Module" - #25 by linuxdev

After formatting the external storage as ext4, I reflash the jetson device.
It boots up successfully.
Then I installed SDK components with apt command.
I appreciate your help.
