Multi-version of Nvidia Jetpack returned

Hi;
I used “sudo apt-cache show nvidia-jetpack” to check Jetpack version of my Xavier NX. Below is the return:

There are 4 versions returned: 4.6.4-b39, 4.6.3-b17, 4.6.2-b5 and 4.6.1-b110. These make me quite confused. Why? I don’t know what the version actually is.
Any one can help on this? Thanks

Hi,

I’m not sure what you actually want to do.
Please just run sudo install nvidia-jetpack, and it will install the right version that matches your L4T version.

Also, to see what packages are present, use “dpkg -l”. You could search more specifically like this:
dpkg -l | egrep -i 'nvidia-jetpack'

The cache itself includes some old packages. I’m not positive, but this is not exactly the same as what is currently installed.

You may also clean up old unused packages with:

sudo apt autoremove
