sdkmanager: No available releases for ubuntu 1910

So, I have a brand new Jetson TX2 dev kit. It doesn’t appear to work out of the box, so I download sdkmanager which won’t let me log in with my developer account because it was created with oath.

I can’t find anyway to set/change my password so that I have a password to give sdkmanager, so I make a new account and now sdkmanager is refusing to let me get past step 1 because I have an Ubuntu 19.10 derivative. (It’s technically Pop! OS, but whatever, it might as well be Ubuntu.)

How do I get past this? Can I just go download a tarball or something?

Thanks,
Chris

P.S. In case it matters, SDK Manager is reporting version 1.0.0.5517. I just downloaded it, so it should be the most recent version.

P.P.S I’m running 19.10 because 18.04 wasn’t supporting my hardware.

Hello Chris,

  Right now Nvidia supports sdkmanager for ubuntu 16.04 and ubuntu 18.04 host only as mentioned <a target='_blank' rel='noopener noreferrer' href='https://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-sdk-manager'>here</a>. sdkmanager may use some userspace lib and commands available and supported in ubuntu 16.04 and 18.04, so would only allow installing through that 2 versions. You can try  <a target='_blank' rel='noopener noreferrer' href='https://docs.nvidia.com/jetson/l4t/index.html#page/Tegra%2520Linux%2520Driver%2520Package%2520Development%2520Guide%2Fquick_start.html%23'>Quick start guide</a> provided by Nvidia to get your Jetson dev Kit ready for working. You may download the tarballs required by the quick start guide from the below link. <a target='_blank' rel='noopener noreferrer' href='https://developer.nvidia.com/embedded/downloads'>https://developer.nvidia.com/embedded/downloads</a>

Note: Quickstart guide is supported by ubuntu 16.04 or 18.04, but you can give it a try.

Edit /etc/os-release, change it to 18. works perfectly.
