I would like to search for all the directories containing files with
jpg extension (*.jpg) on my system. The output should list only the
directory paths, one path only once either it contains one or more
*.jpg files. The file names should be omitted. I'd like to do it in a
bash terminal. Is this feasible? I looked at the find command but
could find how to get the wanted output.

Try this:

find . -type f -name \*jpg -printf "%h\n" | sort -u
