Right, I would add this as a comment, but its "forbidden" so will put as an answer. Perhaps a mod can change it if its not helpful?

Have you by any chance recently installed an Nvidia TX2? There is a bug with the jetpack installation that wipes out the ability to use apt-get update. If this affects you, check through this thread at nvidia for a workaround

Why are you saying that posting this as a comment is "forbidden?"

@jayess because of the big red box that came up when I tried to comment on's post, saying "forbidden"

You probably hit the character limit. You can post multiple comments instead of using an answer.

@jayess nope, couldn't type a single thing. Just an immediate big red banner saying FORBIDDEN. Works now though, glitch.
