It is installed with the sdkmanger in ssd, and the partition of ssd is divided into self-care, and there is an error in the lack of storage space

I attach SSD (500GB) to the Xavier NX Board and try to boot on SSD instead of EMMC. I created 500GB one partition (/dev/nvme0n1p1) in the Xavier NX Board. After that, i tried to install jetpack 5.0.2 (rev.2) through SDK-Manager on Host PC (Ubuntu 20.04). However, there was an error that there was no storage space during the installation. So I checked the partition through Disks in Xavier NX Board. The /dev/nvme0n1p1 partition is reduced from 500GB to 16GB, and the partition is divided into nvme0n1p1 to nvme0n1p10, and free space is 485GB. Partition was divided into several, unlike what I made. Why is it so divided, and how can we solve this phenomenon?

What was the error?
You mean JetPack failed to be installed?

It is expected that there will be multiple small partitions.
Can you please try manually flashing again with this command?

sudo ./tools/kernel_flash/ --external-device nvme0n1p1 -c ./tools/kernel_flash/flash_l4t_external.xml  --showlogs --network usb0 jetson-xavier-nx-devkit-emmc nvme0n1p1

No need to reflash. You need to resize your APP partition to utilize the rest of the free space. When you flash the board, the original app partition size is 16GB. I’m assuming that if this isnt an error, then nvidia is just using that as a safe size. It shouldn’t affect anything when updatikg Jetpack versions but it does. When flashing. If you set it to runtime instead of pre-configured, at the end of setup, it will give you the option to select the app partition size. This however doesnt help if you are trying to update and retain data.
