Toolkit installation error

I am getting the following error in couple of machines that I tried to install the toolkit. Could you please let me know how to fix this error?

  • Which OS are you trying to install the toolkit on? The toolkit is designed to run on a computer with the Ubuntu Linux 16.04 LTS operating system.

  • I am installing it on Ubuntu 14.04. Is there any issue in installing it on Ubuntu 14.04?

  • @asvkarthick MvNC SDK is supported only on Ubuntu 16.04. There are quite a lot of dependency issues with 14.04, unless you are willing to manually find and install all dependencies, I recommend you move to a machine running Ubuntu 16.04.

  • Are later versions of Ubuntu going to be supported? Is it easy to install on 17.04?

  • @jwhitmore the reason we choose 16.04 is because of its LTS plan (5 years as stated by canonical). Is there a specific reason you want 17.04 (9 months as stated by canonical)?
