Problem installing jetpack 4.2 in jetson TX2 board


I have a nvidia TX2 board and trying to install jetpack 4.2, when tried to download got sdkmanager_0.9.11-3405_adm64.deb (NVIDIA SDK Manager) from

I’m getting this error

sudo dpkg -i ./sdkmanager_0.9.11-3405_amd64.deb
dpkg: error processing archive ./sdkmanager_0.9.11-3405_amd64.deb (–install):
package architecture (amd64) does not match system (arm64)
Errors were encountered while processing:

Didn’t find any run file for jetpack 4.2

I’m using ubuntu 16.04LTS, any help on installing jetpack 4.2 on TX2 kit would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Hi varun365,

It looks like you try to install SDK Manager directly on Jetson TX2, right?

AFAIK, SDK Manager/JetPack tools should be installed on a host PC and NOT directly on Jetson TX2 board.

You should install SDK Manager on PC with Ubuntu 16.04 OS or later, plug a USB cable between Jetson TX2 Devkit and PC, and follow steps indicated by SDK Manager.

SDK Manager will flash JetPack contents (librairies, OS L4T, etc.) to Jetson TX2.

Hi varun365,

Please refer to relevant docs of NVIDIA SDK Manager:
