Upgrade to R35

After setting up a new Nvidia Jetson AGX Orin Developer Kit following https://developer.nvidia.com/embedded/learn/get-started-jetson-agx-orin-devkit, my L4T version is:

# R34 (release), REVISION: 1.1, GCID: 30414990, BOARD: t186ref, EABI: aarch64, DATE: Tue May 17 04:20:55 UTC 2022

There exists Developer Guide r35.1. How can I upgrade to R35?

Hi pauljurczak,

You could upgrade the board though apt command.

Please refer to the following link for OTA update.
Software Packages and the Update Mechanism — Over-the-Air Update
$ sudo apt update
$ apt list --upgradable
$ sudo apt upgrade

I did that. sudo apt update returns All packages are up to date.

What’s the content of your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nvidia-l4t-apt-source.list?


deb https://repo.download.nvidia.com/jetson/common r34.1 main
deb https://repo.download.nvidia.com/jetson/t234 r34.1 main

I was following the instructions from: https://developer.nvidia.com/embedded/learn/get-started-jetson-agx-orin-devkit

You could try to modify r34.1 → r35.1

Follow the instructions here in To update to a new minor release

And install some packages manually
$ sudo apt install nvidia-l4t-openwfd nvidia-l4t-vulkan-sc-dev nvidia-l4t-vulkan-sc-samples nvidia-l4t-vulkan-sc-sdk nvidia-l4t-vulkan-sc nvidia-l4t-jetsonpower-gui-tools

It failed with:

Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Full log:
log1.txt (30.8 KB)

I tried:

sudo apt --fix-broken install

which makes these changes to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nvidia-l4t-apt-source.list

 deb https://repo.download.nvidia.com/jetson/common r35.1 main
-deb https://repo.download.nvidia.com/jetson/t234 r35.1 main
+deb https://repo.download.nvidia.com/jetson/<SOC> r35.1 main

and asks for a reboot after updating bootloader. System seems to be bricked now.

It looks you get some dpkg issues.

Try this:
Solution : dpkg: error processing package nvidia-l4t-bootloader --configure) - Jetson & Embedded Systems / Jetson Nano - NVIDIA Developer Forums

Hard reboot seemed to work. It shows:

# R35 (release), REVISION: 1.0, GCID: 31346300, BOARD: t186ref, EABI: aarch64, DATE: Thu Aug 25 18:41:45 UTC 2022

Not sure about the upgrade integrity, though.

You might need to reboot between sudo apt update and $ sudo apt upgrade.
Is there other warnings or errors?

You could use sudo apt list -a|grep "XXXX" to check related packages if installed successfully.
Software Packages and the Update Mechanism — Update Packages for Jetson Devices

No error messages and apt reports up to date.
