Failure to install jevois-sdk-dev

0 votes
Hello, I am having issues with installing jevois-sdk-dev on my laptop. First of all, I am running JeVois on Ubuntu 16.04.4 (64 bit) as stated below.

avanti@avanti-Latitude-3340:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID:    Ubuntu
Description:    Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS
Release:    16.04
Codename:    xenial

I have followed the steps on https://jevois.usc.edu/ for the 64 bit xenial version;  however, it has resulted in a failure as shown below.

avanti@avanti-Latitude-3340:~$ sudo apt install jevois-sdk-dev

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 jevois-sdk-dev : Depends: jevois-sdk (>= 1.8.0) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I have also tried every other methods including artful version, upgrading, etc. but ended up with the same results. If there are any packages I need to install or remove prior to installing jevois-sdk-dev, please let me know. If this is yet another bug, I am hoping for the fix to happen as soon as possible.

We are compiling a new version now (1.8.1). I will make sure that I test it on various virtual machines before we push it. It might have been an issue in the 1.8.0 debs of jevois-sdk as you are not the first to report trouble, sorry about that.

I will post a video of the install process on fresh 16.04 and 18.04 virtual machines as soon as the compilation is finished here.

Thank you for your reply! Now I can finally be freed from the debugging nightmare. :)
It is working fine on 18.04, and it all compiled and built ok on 16.04. I just pushed the new 1.8.1 debs to jevois.usc.edu for both 16.04 and 18.04. I have then tested that the following works:

- installing Ubuntu 18.04 (bionic) on VirtualBox

- installing the jevois ubuntu (.deb) packages

- installing jevois-inventor and trying it out

- getting the latest jevois source code from github

- compiling that source code, both for host (your Intel computer) and platform (the ARM CPU inside JeVois)

- flashing the freshly compiled code to microSD

I shot a video of the process. Youtube is very slow now but in maybe 2-3 hours it should be at: https://youtu.be/pgd7pW1XDU8

The video also has been added to: http://jevois.org/tutorials/ProgrammerSetup.html

Sorry that stuff takes a long time (a day to compile the SDK, then a couple of hours to test it on one platform) so I have only had time today to try it on 18.04. I am hoping it works the same on 16.04. Just remember to select "something else" when you format your virtual hard drive in 16.04, and then make a single root partition for your entire 50GB virtual disk (by default, 16.04 creates a root partition that is too small, and then a separate /home partition - you do not want that).
Thank you very much for the update! I will download and flash the new image onto the micro SD card and try to install the packages once more.
I have tried to install the packages once more, but ended up with the same results.

For additional information, I am using a native ubuntu on a Dell laptop.

Thanks for the logs! What's this:

Hit:19 https://jevois.usc.edu/apt artful InRelease                             


Maybe you should remove that debian source since you are on xenial, you should only have the xenial source activated. Maybe your problem comes from the inability to install the artful (ubuntu 17.10) jevois packages on your xenial (ubuntu 16.04) system.

After you remove that source, try things like

sudo apt -f install
sudo apt purge *jevois*
dpkg --remove jevois*

to get your machine out of the broken dependency state.

Now you also have this:

N: Skipping acquire of configured file 'main/binary-arm64/Packages' as repository 'https://jevois.usc.edu/apt xenial InRelease' doesn't support architecture 'arm64'

yes, we don't support arm64 hosts, only amd64. Maybe you should remove all your jevois sources and then start fresh by adding only the one you need: xenial for amd64.
Fixed! I have deleted every JeVois files/repositories and reinstalled the packages from scratch.

Shown below are all the steps I've taken in order to install the packages successfully.

1. Open Ubuntu Software app
2. Open the tab Ubuntu Software and click Software & Updates
3. Click on the Other Software tab
4. Delete all JeVois related repositories
5. Reload and update the list
6. Delete all JeVois related files and folders from the computer
7. Open terminal and enter the following commands:
sudo apt -f install
sudo apt purge *jevois*
sudo dpkg --remove jevois*
8. Follow the steps shown on https://jevois.usc.edu/
(The following steps are for the 16.04 xenial version)
8.1. open terminal and type sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys DD24C027
8.2. sudo add-apt-repository "deb https://jevois.usc.edu/apt xenial main"
8.3. sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test
8.4. sudo apt update
8.5. sudo apt upgrade
8.6. shut down and restart the computer
8.7. open terminal and type sudo apt autoremove
8.8. sudo apt install jevois-sdk-dev

There may be few steps which aren't necessary for the installment; however, I would recommend one to follow all the steps just in case. Thank you so much for the helpful advice!
