Xavier AGX and ROS issue

Hi

I have a Xavier AGX based computer and I am trying to install ROS. I am getting the following error:

nvidia@nvidia-desktop:/dev$ sudo apt install ros-melodic-desktop-full
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
ros-melodic-desktop-full : Depends: ros-melodic-desktop but it is not going to be installed
Depends: ros-melodic-perception but it is not going to be installed
Depends: ros-melodic-simulators but it is not going to be installed
Depends: ros-melodic-urdf-sim-tutorial but it is not going to be installed

uname shows:

nvidia@nvidia-desktop:/dev$ uname -r
4.9.140-tegra

Any suggestion what could be wrong/missing?

What’s in /etc/apt/sources.list and/or /etc/apt/sources/list.d/ros-latest.list?

It looks like you may not have properly added the ROS apt sources. Can you try re-running steps 1.2, 1.3, and 1.4 from here: https://wiki.ros.org/Installation/Ubuntu

Specifically:

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://packages.ros.org/ros/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list'
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver 'hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80' --recv-key C1CF6E31E6BADE8868B172B4F42ED6FBAB17C654
sudo apt update

Still no luck. I added additional output about my system

What error do you get if you try to individually install ros-melodic-desktop, ros-melodic-perception, or any other the other blocked dependencies? If you keep going down the chain of trying to manually install the missing dependencies you should eventually see what underlying package is causing the conflict.
