JetPack 4.6 dpkg issue (Tx2 4GB)


I have downloaded and flashed JetPack 4.6 on my Tx2-4GB from the SDK Manager and I am having some issues with dpgk/apt. After doing first time set up I attempted to use apt-get to install a package (vsftpd) and this was consistently failing with errors related to the dependency blueman.

Most simply the issue can be reproduced by flashing 4.6, doing first time setup and then running ‘sudo dpkg --configure -a’ from the console.

jetson@jetson:~$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
[sudo] password for jetson:
Setting up blueman (2.0.5-1ubuntu1.1) …

dpkg: error processing package blueman (–configure):

With this issue I am not able to use apt-get install to install any additional packages. Is there any way I can solve this?


Hi cpoland,

We can’t reproduce your issue on JetPack-4.6 (r32.6.1.).
Run below command is work:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install vsftpd

I was able to redownload JetPack-4.6 and after flashing again I am able to see the correct behavior.
