Noob installation questions for Jetpack

The instructions say Jetpack must be installed from a HOST machine, does this mean i need another computer to do the installation? Trying to do this directly on the Jetson just get’s me this error: “Error: JetPack must be run on x86_64 HOST platform. Detected aarch64 platform.”

I looked up solutions to this error, but not of them seem to apply here. What am i doing wroooong?

Flashing software runs on any x86_64 64-bit desktop Linux machine…a host. JetPack bundles several things together, and depends specifically on the Ubuntu 14.04 Linux distribution (running on x86_64 64-bit hardware).
