Note: Jetpack/L4T upgrade using debian package management tool is now fixed and reenabled.
We had temporarily disabled the feature of upgrading JetPack or L4T using debian package management tool due to an issue we found in one of our debian packages causing the device to not boot properly. We have fixed this issue now and have reenabled this feature. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused.
