Sdkmanager_1.9.2-10899_amd64.deb fails

I installed a SSD on my Xavier AGX and wanted to establish a new system with the SDK Manager.
Unfortunately the installation failed:

sudo apt install ./sdkmanager_1.9.2-10899_amd64.deb 
Reading package lists... Done

Note, selecting 'sdkmanager:amd64' instead of './sdkmanager_1.9.2-10899_amd64.deb'
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

                    Depends: locales:amd64 but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Do you have any suggestion or idea how to get this fixed?
As I intent to create a new system anyway, maybe there is an alternative you would consider instead of the SDK Manager?

Dear Xavier community,

One thing I don’t understand: Why is this obviously a amd64 file?
Isn’t the Jetson Family all ARM based?

Still looking for someone who can point me to instructions setting-up a Xavier AGX from scratch.

Thanks for the link to the wiki!

Gmph! - Option lost: I need a second AMD64 Linux machine. -
I am sitting on a boat with an iPad and my Xavier…

I better go swimming now and thanks again for the link!

Are you using the devkit or custom board for AGX Xavier?

SDK Manager should be installed on an Ubuntu 18.04 or 20.04 host PC, and then you could use it to flash your board.

Thanks for coming back on this one!

I am using the devkit.

As I don’t have a second AMD64 with me, maybe we could fix what has caused the malfunction.
I did download ‘cuda-tegra-repo-ubuntu2004-12-0-local_12.0.0-1_arm64.deb’ to


and did do a ‘cmake …/.’ from within the



Thant did not cure my python problem, so I did copy the .deb file with associated files to my home directory and did a ‘cmake …/.’ again from


That seems to have caused problem. -
Do you have an advise to cure the system apart from a new setup?

Sorry, x86-64 host PC is necessary to run the SDK Manager and flash the board.
We suggest using Ubuntu18.04 or 20.04 as host PC to develop the Jetson device and that’s what we’ve verified and worked on.

Thank you, I already became active with the SDKManager on Ubuntu 20.04.
