My Ubuntu 18.04 host is a very underpowered dual Atom laptop, and I constantly see this when using JetPack/SDKM. I just “keep installing” and it eventually works. I really do advise though to just keep saying yes, you want to continue many times before trying something else.
Can you describe the host PC hardware? I am curious if it is just lower powered like mine, or perhaps its internet connection is just slow.
Do note that more recent releases use the
apt-get mechanism and that the SDKM will just log in to your Jetson via ssh and install packages via
apt-get. Which release are you using? One of these two should work:
# Older releases:
head -n 1 /etc/nv_tegra_release
# Newer releases:
dpkg -l | grep 'nvidia-l4t-core'
If the release is available via the grep for “nvidia-l4t-core”, then what do you see for “
apt search nvidia-l4t”? If you see CUDA in one of search replies, then try installing via “
sudo apt-get install nvidia-l4t-WhichEverItIs”.
