I have been trying to install cuda, and I cannot for the life of me figure this out :(. This is the error that i keep running into, and I can't think of any packages that would be broken on this machine. It's a fresh install of Ubuntu Server (uname -a
Linux marte 4.18.0-11-generic #12-Ubuntu SMP Tue Oct 23 19:22:37 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux running Cosmic)
% sudo apt-get install cuda Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: cuda : Depends: cuda-10-0 (>= 10.0.130) but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
Some other possibly useful information?
My attempt to find any broken packages

Edit: Going down the rabbit whole to try and install unmet dependencies manually, I have come to the following wall
The following packages have unmet dependencies: nvidia-410 : Depends: xorg-video-abi-11 but it is not installable or xorg-video-abi-12 but it is not installable or xorg-video-abi-13 but it is not installable or xorg-video-abi-14 but it is not installable or xorg-video-abi-15 but it is not installable or xorg-video-abi-18 but it is not installable or xorg-video-abi-19 but it is not installable or xorg-video-abi-20 but it is not installable or xorg-video-abi-23 but it is not installable Recommends: nvidia-settings (>= 331.20) but it is not going to be installed Recommends: nvidia-prime (>= 0.5) but it is not going to be installed or bumblebee but it is not going to be installed
Does anyone have any suggestions?
