Install SDK Manager on Xavier

I try to install SDK Manager on Xavier ,but it seems that the .deb architecture is amd64.
How can I install it?

Hi martin860220,

Have you managed to use SDK manager to flash your Xaiver, also installed required SDK packages on your host PC?


After I reached Step 2 in the SDK Manager (, I accepted the terms & condition, then clicked Continue to Step 03, it shows me a pop-up that says “SDK Manager is about to flash your Jetson AGX Xavier” and below it says “Enter the username and password of your Jetson AGX Xavier” which I think it prompted me to create earlier but I’m not sure… The problem is that it keeps rejecting any entry that I make there and I’m forced to skip it… I actually was able to connect the Xavier to a monitor and finish off its setup but I’m afraid it’s not complete, especially that I"m seeing that some of the samples and other things mentioned in documentation do not exist on the file system on the Xavier… what am I missing?

Hi martin860220,

Please run the deb file on your host ubuntu (16.04 or 18.04) machine.
Install the Debian package:

sudo apt install ./sdkmanager_0.9.11-3405_amd64.deb

Launch SDK Manager with the following command:

I think we have two users facing different problem here.


Sdkmanager should be installed on ubuntu host but not on your jetson Xavier.


Your case sounds more similar to recent problems reported by other forum users. Could you just give the prompt with username/pwd = nvidia/nvidia? If this still hit error, could you share the log with us?
