Unable to load archived SDK Manager version

I am unable to install SDK Manager on a new machine running Ubuntu 18.04. I successfully download the SDK Manager to my machine and run the following command to install JetPack version 4.4.1 support tools out of the archive. I get an error saying I am missing parts. Does this have to do with the system’s use of “sdkmanager” rather than sdkmanager_1.5.0-7774_amd64.deb? ubuntu@ubuntu:~/Downloads$ sudo apt install ./sdkmanager_1.5.0-7774_amd64.deb

Hello @rsheffield

Can you try this command:

sudo apt-get install -f

Hope it works


I Googled and found this thread where folks were getting the identical error messages as I am on an earlier release.
Followed the instructions and it now works properly.
