I've got NVidia graphics and kubuntu 12.04 system. I've got 173 version of the driver installed currently and I try to install a newer driver (version 331 or 319). The beginning goes smoothly:

2014-01-28 16:43:46,588 DEBUG: install progress nvidia-331-updates 80.000000

but eventually it fails all the time. /var/log/jockey.log contains the following (it's just the beginning):

Does anybody know what's going wrong?
