sudo apt-get update stops at 0% working.

If you have nvidia-docker 1.0 installed: we need to remove it and all existing GPU containers

docker volume ls -q -f driver=nvidia-docker | xargs -r -I{} -n1 docker ps -q -a -f volume={} | xargs -r docker rm -f
sudo apt-get purge -y nvidia-docker

Add the package repositories

curl -s -L |
sudo apt-key add -
distribution=$(. /etc/os-release;echo $ID$VERSION_ID)
curl -s -L$distribution/nvidia-docker.list |
sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nvidia-docker.list
sudo apt-get update

Install nvidia-docker2 and reload the Docker daemon configuration

sudo apt-get install -y nvidia-docker2
sudo pkill -SIGHUP dockerd

Test nvidia-smi with the latest official CUDA image

docker run --runtime=nvidia --rm nvidia/cuda nvidia-smi


Nvidia-docker doesn’t support Jetson yet.

If you are looking for a docker container for Jetson, you can check this page to get some information:


I am trying to build Nvidia redtail project, which says to install Nvidia Docker on jetson:

Note: Please see under “redtail docker”

The above link leads to :

I followed the instructions from this link for Ubuntu system. I am not sure what I am missing!!


The page you mentioned is for the x86 platform.
The current configuration assumes all components are installed on a x86 host platform running Ubuntu 16.04. It is also possible to install some components on Jetson while others (like Gazebo etc) - on the host machine.

Only some components can be enabled on Jetson but not nvidia-docker.
