Unable to access CUDA repo from CUDA L4t docker container


Could you share which platform you use?

Here is the WAR for JetPack 5.0.2:

Xavier or XavierNX

$ rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*
$ echo "deb https://repo.download.nvidia.com/jetson/common r35.1 main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nvidia-l4t-apt-source.list
$ echo "deb https://repo.download.nvidia.com/jetson/t194 r35.1 main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nvidia-l4t-apt-source.list
$ apt update


$ rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*
$ echo "deb https://repo.download.nvidia.com/jetson/common r35.1 main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nvidia-l4t-apt-source.list
$ echo "deb https://repo.download.nvidia.com/jetson/t234 r35.1 main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nvidia-l4t-apt-source.list
$ apt update


Hello, I’m on the Orin. According to Getting Started with Jetson AGX Orin Developer Kit | NVIDIA Developer I shouldn’t update to r35.1 main. I did that last week and it didn’t work out: after a sudo apt dist-upgrade I couldn’t reboot.

W: Failed to fetch http://cuda-internal.nvidia.com/release-candidates/kitpicks/cuda-r11-4-tegra/11.4.14/011/repos/l4t/arm64/InRelease  Could not resolve 'cuda-internal.nvidia.com'
W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

If I had access to cuda-internal.nvidia.com that would seem a problem…


Please remove the source list as below:

$ rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*

So apt won’t access the cuda-internal.nvidia.com anymore.

Done. Now I can’t upgrade NVIDIA packages though. What sources.list does NVIDIA publish for users?


Please follow the command on Sep 8 to add the URL.

Please noted that the comment is for JetPack 5.0.2 environment.
If you are using another JetPack, please modify it correspondingly.


Understood. This is in direct conflict with NVIDIA’s Orin documentation– see Step 2, “Attention”. Changing apt sources to match what your instruction makes the Orin unbootable.


The document is for the native Orin environment.
However, here is the package source list inside the container.
It’s expected that the OS version between native and container is already aligned.


Hello, I’ve commented out the NVIDIA’s deb servers. Not I can’t upgrade NVIDIA packages (NVIDIA repos aren’t updated with apt update).


Do you run the apt update inside the container or natively on the Jetson?
If within the container, do you use JetPack 5.0.2 (r35.1) for both environments?

More, please share all the configure files under the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ with us.

Hello, and sorry for the delay! You can find that exact information in the link I sent earlier, the documentation for setting up your Orin.

I followed NVIDIA’s instructions so mine are no different.
