Unable to install 'Multimedia API' (32.1) during SDK Manager setup process

I am unable to fully install JETPACK 4.2 Linux for Jetson Nano (Developer Kit Version).
It always fails during the ‘Multimedia API’ section.

From the SDK Manager ‘terminal’ screen:

12:34:30 ERROR : Multimedia API : NV_MULTIMEDIA_API_TARGET_POST_INSTALL_NANO_COMP command scp -q -o UserKnownHostsFile=/dev/null -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no /tmp/tmp_NV_MULTIMEDIA_API_TARGET_POST_INSTALL_NANO_COMP.sh xxxx@999.999.9.999:~; ssh -t -q -o UserKnownHostsFile=/dev/null -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no xxxx@999.999.9.999 "~/tmp_NV_MULTIMEDIA_API_TARGET_POST_INSTALL_NANO_COMP.sh && rm -f ~/tmp_NV_MULTIMEDIA_API_TARGET_POST_INSTALL_NANO_COMP.sh" finished with error

When running ~/tmp_NV_MULTIMEDIA_API_TARGET_POST_INSTALL_NANO_COMP.sh on the Nano itself, it fails here:

Does anyone know how to resolve this?

I am having problems with a corrupted download for the mmapi code. If JetPack gets it from the same source, only some files get extracted, and JetPack ignores that error, I suppose that might explain it, but that’s just a guess.

Thank you for the response.

I deleted the previously downloaded Tegra_Multimedia_API_R32.1.0_aarch64.tbz2 file. The same errors resulted on the next attempt with the freshly downloaded file.

Integrity of the file was also checked:

xx@xx:~/Downloads/nvidia/sdkm_downloads$ bzip2 --test Tegra_Multimedia_API_R32.1.0_aarch64.tbz2

The files decompressed without error as well.

It was my hope that it was going to be the issue that could be resolved by downgrading bzip2.

For the sake of time, it looks like I’ll need to move forward without the Jetson Multimedia API package.

Hi WelcomeToMali,

On #1 steps 3: enter the IP address, are you using usb mode ip address ( or eth0 IP address?
Could you try using eth0 IP address? Thanks!

Hello Carolyuu,
This was originally done over the eth0 IP address. Apologies for not mentioning that above.

Hi WelcomeToMali,

Are you got this error every time when you using SDK manager to install JetPack-4.2?
Other components are can be installed success? only MMAPI install fail?

Mine fails as well. 128 GB SD card but ONLY set to 15 GB by the sdk manager and is NOT expanded even if you power down and back up after image installed.

I have the same issues. Also everything but MMAPI is succesful only MMAPI is throwing errors. Is there a way to skip it in that all i care about it computer vision components.
