Unable to Locate Package - Basically every package i try to install

I have tried almost everything to install packages i need to get things running on this thing: Almost everything i try to install give me E: Unable to locate package “any package i try”.

Its a new board. I loaded JetPack 4.4 everything is installed fine but i’m trying to get the following packages installed and they can’t be located…

gpuboard # apt-get install git cmake libatlas-base-dev gfortran
gpuboard # apt-get install libhdf5-serial-dev hdf5-tools python3-dev python3-pip
gpuboard # apt-get install libpcap-dev libpq-dev python3-matplotlib

Is basic networking functional? Do the following commands succeed?

  • host nvidia.com
  • host ubuntu.com
  • ping ubuntu.com

Any error message you get probably has more to it than just the note that it failed. Can you quote the entire failure message?

It wasn’t on single thing to resolve the problem. Seems out of the box installing anything on the nano is a bit of a challange. Biggest thing to resolve the initial issues was enabling Universe, Multiverse and Restricted right out of the gate!
sudo add-apt-repository universe
sudo add-apt-repository multiverse
sudo add-apt-restricted
sudo apt update
That will drive newbies like me banana’s for a while…

Also there are many challanges I’ve run into installing python3 libraries for intel realsense depth camera’s. Once i figure that out i’m thinking about putting a tutorial together since its such a pain.


Yes, the default of Ubuntu is to not enable those. I tend to do this automatically and tend to forget to suggest it to other people. I think Ubuntu sets it up that way for legal reasons.
