Trouble flashing Nvidia SDK Manager to Jetson Orin Nano

I am currently trying to flash the sdk manager to a Jetson Orin Nano 8GB. We’ve tried connecting the USB-C cable, using a jumper cable to get the Orin Nano into force recovery mode, and then plugging in the power supply. However, when we try to flash we are getting the following error:

illiame@william-VM:~$ lsusb

We are trying to get Ubuntu up and running on the Orin Nano. The host machine we are using is running Ubuntu 22.04, should we be using an older Ubuntu version?

There is no update from you for a period, assuming this is not an issue any more.
Hence we are closing this topic. If need further support, please open a new one.

Let me check it first… is your host ubuntu a VM environment?

Also, is this your first time flashing a jetson? Your script looks like not something we provided.
