sudo apt upgrade, I get the following error (or warning, not sure what it is):
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Calculating upgrade... Done The following packages have been kept back: libnvidia-cfg1-440 libnvidia-compute-440 libnvidia-compute-440:i386 libnvidia-decode-440 libnvidia-decode-440:i386 libnvidia-encode-440 libnvidia-encode-440:i386 libnvidia-extra-440 libnvidia-fbc1-440 libnvidia-fbc1-440:i386 libnvidia-gl-440 libnvidia-gl-440:i386 libnvidia-ifr1-440 libnvidia-ifr1-440:i386 nvidia-compute-utils-440 nvidia-driver-440 nvidia-kernel-common-440 nvidia-kernel-source-440 nvidia-utils-440 xserver-xorg-video-nvidia-440 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 20 not upgraded.
I found the solution (run
sudo apt install <package-name>). I also found out why it does so. It is because the newer version has unmet dependencies.
But my doubt is, is it safe to do
sudo apt install <package-name>, or will the system take care of it in a few days. If so, then how many days would it take to resolve this on its own?
My current Nvidia Drivers are 440.
sudo apt install <package-name>should fail due to the same missing dependencies. We recommend against forcing package installs without a better reason.
sudo apt autoremove? Which version of the NVIDIA driver are you using?
