This question already has an answer here:
I have a clean install of Ubuntu MATE 18.04 that I wish to install TensorFlow on with GPU support. My GPU is a Titan X.
I am following the instructions from the GPU support guide but I am unable to install the NVIDIA driver due to broken packages. Here is the command and its output:
$ sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends nvidia-driver-410 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: nvidia-driver-410 : Depends: xserver-xorg-video-nvidia-410 (= 410.104-0ubuntu1) but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
I tried resolving this by using
aptitude in place of
apt-get and accepting the proposed solution. However, upon reboot the system freezes at login. Since it was a clean install, I simply reinstalled the OS, and now I am back to this original problem.
How do I resolve the broken packages so I can install the driver for my GPU?
