18.04.2 LTS seems to be the latest version that is supported by Vitis. It is no longer on the Ubuntu site nor on the mirror sites.. anyone have a link?
Also - is there a step by step way to get a zcu104 board working with Vitis and Linux? I only found this:
I followed it to the T.. but get build errors executing peta_build.sh. (seems to be related to encryption perhaps)
My prerequisites as listed in the PetaLinux install requirement deviated a bit: tftpd is required but it complains about tftp so I installed that as well. I also just installed dos2unix since the version they list could not be found. (If precision is required then Xilinx should be precise with their instructions.)
I'm running 18.04.3!!!! so that was my last guess.. (probably not the reason) but now 18.04.2 can't be found.
Also noticed that XRT seems to require 18.04.1 (so not the same as the rest of the toolset.. hope that is not another issue).

Thanks, I accepted it as a solution.. but had to use 18.04.1 since 18.04.2 failed the install.. saying there was a drive error. I tried on multiple drives (both source and destination) with the same results as well as mulitple downloads. It is possible that the file is corrupted.. I tried to contact people at Ubuntu.. but in the end it was too hard to get to anyone..

It was a strange message..
During the install.. right when the "ads" start playing showing what is new in Ubuntu.. a popup comes up.. saying something like (improvising a bit here): "Install can't complete. There is an error with the drive. This can happen if there is a sector failure on the drive or damage to an SD card."
It was unclear if the damage was to the destination or the install media. I downloaded it again and used a different SD card and got the same error. I also installed it to a different destination drive. Same error.
No issues with any other version of Ubuntu on my setup with the same drives.
So while there is a chance that there is something specifically wrong with my setup that is triggering it.. I'm thinking there is also a chance that there could be something wrong with the downloadable media. There may not be too many people using this version so it may be under the radar.
