“import torch” fails on the NVIDIA Jetson Nano

NVIDIA provides the Linux4Tegra (L4T) distribution as an image for use with the NVIDIA Jetson Nano. However, once you upgrade the whole system, strange problems will pop up, one of which I have described here: NVIDIA Docker “permission denied: unknown.” on Jetson Nano.

When applying a popular solution described here by adding a new repository to your L4T installation, this will result in interesting error messages such as the following when trying to run L4T-ML containers:

docker run  --rm --runtime nvidia -it nvcr.io/nvidia/l4t-ml:r32.7.1-py3 python3 -c "import torch"

libcurand.so.10: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
