I recently updated my Linux kernel in Ubuntu 16.04 to 4.20.6 because of wifi issue. Now whenever I try installing NVIDIA drivers and reboot, I get stuck in login loop. Here is what Additional Drivers is showing

enter image description here

I tried many things mentioned in forum but none of them seems to work. The graphics card details is

1f:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation GK208B [GeForce GT 710] [10de:128b] (rev a1)

I tried solutions from here, but it doesn't seem to work. My secure boot is disabled too.

Any suggestions?

EDIT This is what I am getting during installation

Loading new nvidia-410-410.78 DKMS files...
First Installation: checking all kernels...
Building only for 4.20.6
Building for architecture x86_64
Module build for the currently running kernel was skipped since the
kernel source for this kernel does not seem to be installed.

and this is what I am getting during purge

This problem is due to upgradation of Kernel to 4.20. It works fine with default Kernel. ANY HELP will be appreciated!!

  • My first suggestion is purge the Nvidia drivers, remove the PPA, and then install the recommended Nvidia drivers version from the official repositories. You don't need the brand new versions for a GT710. – GabrielaGarcia Feb 1 at 16:49
  • @GabrielaGarcia already purged and removed PPA many times. what should be the recommended version? – rock321987 Feb 1 at 16:53
  • The Nvidia website suggests 410 only and that version is - I think - available at the official repositories for 16.04. So, start by not adding the graphics drivers PPA and purging all the drivers installed before with sudo apt purge nvidia*. – GabrielaGarcia Feb 1 at 16:57
  • @GabrielaGarcia same is happening – rock321987 Feb 1 at 17:18
  • Did you check the login-loop fix in askubuntu.com/questions/223501/… ? – ubfan1 Feb 1 at 17:25
