I suspect NI drivers are not supported on that version of ubuntu. 

As it is indicated in below article daqmx should be available on 18.04 ubuntu. any chance you can try on that version?

Have you tried without the hyphen? eg

apt install nidaqmx

(No comment on arm support, just to check the package name is correct)
