can someone please help?

Ive done the following :

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt install ./sdkmanager-[version].[build#].deb

Then I recieve this error message:

E: Unsupported file ./sdkmanager-0.9.13-4763_amd64.deb given on commandline

I think the version is 0.9
I think the build number is 13-4763_amd64
that’s the information on the sdk manager.

Are you installing to host PC or to the Jetson? Only a host PC accepts this, so if this is going to a Jetson, then you have to install to a host instead and then use the host to flash the Jetson.

I’m downloading on the host so that I can flash to the jetson and getting the error.

E: Unsupported file ./sdkmanager-0.9.13-4763_amd64.deb given on commandline

If you run the command (from the same directory as the .deb) below, what does it say?

file ./sdkmanager-0.9.13-4763_amd64.deb

Basically, I’m wondering if perhaps there was a file error during download. Also, on your host, what do you get from:

cat /etc/issue

Hi carolyuu:

How to install sdkmanager_0.9.13-4763_amd64.deb on a TX2? Specifically what is the version number, what is the build number? with the above file named file downloaded from the nvidia site.
Thank you very much in advance.

I am planning to use TX2 as host, and Jetson Nano as target, so that I can use isaac SDK for development. Would this be possible?

Because isaac SDK setup saying that the host machine has to be 3.5 or above on the GPU scale and I don’t have a PC/laptop like that. I have a TX2. So could I use TX2 as host? using sdkmanager to set up Jetson nano? (Even though the Jetson nano already have JetPack 4.2 installed there currently.)

JetPack and SDK Manager can only be installed on a desktop PC architecture. Jetsons cannot run or add amd64 architecture. The host adds software to systems or flashes systems, but is not run directly on the Jetson (it isn’t possible).

Thanks You guys I’ve got the sdk manager up and running thanks

Can you explian please how you do that ??

I am also getting this error
E: Unsupported file ./sdkmanager-[version].[build#].deb given on commandline

The “.deb” file is a package, not an executable program. On the desktop host PC running Ubuntu you can do this to install (and of course substitute the actual version/build):

sudo dpkg -i ./sdkmanager-[version].[build#].deb

After this is done you will find “sdkmanager” in “/usr/bin/” (file “/usr/bin/sdkmanager”). Then, as a non-root user, just type in on a command line “sdkmanager”.

If the actual dpkg command has issues, then some debugging will be needed.

I got a same error

Hi can you tell how did you do that thanks

For everyone asking about this, first verify you are installing to a PC running Ubuntu Linux.

This part is just an abstraction of the real file name since this changes with version, but the usual method of installing a package which you already have (a “.deb” file) is:

sudo dpkg -i ./<some file name.deb>

If it turns out that the file name is “sdkmanager_0.9.14-4964_amd64.deb”, then this would be the exact line on the host PC:

sudo dpkg -i ./sdkmanager_0.9.14-4964_amd64.deb

If this fails, then be sure to post the error which you received.

Hi linuxdev,

Many thanks for sharing the solution. It shall help users resolving the problem.

Hi linuxdev,
i’m trying installing sdkmanager and getting this error.

There are some prerequisite dependencies. “apt” as a tool is a front end to find the right dependencies and do what is needed, whereas dpkg is a direct package install tool without the ability to find dependencies (other than complaining about missing dependencies). For people working on Ubuntu 18.04, do this prior to working with SDK Manager:

sudo apt update
sudo apt --fix-broken install
sudo apt-get install libgconf-2-4 libcanberra-gtk-module
sudo apt-get install python

Once those are installed the dpkg tool should be ok with installing the “.deb” file.

Hello, I went in and ran all of the lines in my terminal that you mentioned about dpkg below.

I then ran:
sudo dpkg -i /sdkmanager_1.1.0-6343_amd64.deb

The below error message came back:
dpkg: error: cannot access archive ‘/sdkmanager_1.1.0-6343_amd64.deb’: No such file or directory

Can you help with this?
