Visionworks on host : First Error: APT system is broken and requires manual fix

Hello

I have question about JETSON AGX XAVIER. I encountered an error while installing the jetpack 4.5 package via sdkmanager. Error message is

01:32:11 ERROR: VisionWorks on Host: E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

How can ı solve this error ?

Usually the first thing to try is:

sudo apt update
sudo apt --fix-broken install

See if that works on the host. If not, post the results.

Now that this is done, what happens if you try again to install the software you were previously interested in? If not, what do you see on the host from:
dpkg -l | egrep -i '(nvidia|vision)'

This is all host side, so it shouldn’t be too picky, but what do you see from:
apt search libvisionworks

A possible issue I noticed: There is no ‘nvidia-kernel’. Many of the hardware accelerated packages mandate using both (A) the NVIDIA kernel, and (B) a qualified NVIDIA GPU. Does your host PC have an NVIDIA GPU? If so, what model?

Yesterday I bumped into this issue myself as well. Installing a Jetson Nano is getting ridiculous. All the complicated setup, environment, quirks, both physical and software.
Shouldn’t it be easier? At least clearer.
I’m trying to summarize ALL the requirement to install a Nano.
