Ubuntu updating nvidia
This Ubuntu 18.04 Nvidia drivers not working issue is what I have experienced myself personally when I execute the “sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall” command line. It looks like Ubuntu is waiting for a password for the generated private key. So, what I did was I blindly enter a password twice and the driver installation continues.Another solution would be to temporarily disable the secure boot option in your BIOS and retry install the driver.If an n Vidia driver is updated then all n Vidia user space components will stop working immediately after the respective package updates as the loaded kernel module and the user space components have a version mismatch.The consequences are not immediately visible to the user as n Vidia components in memory are still properly matched and hence still work.After successfully installed, reboot your Ubuntu system for the driver changes to take effect.Alternatively, if you prefer to install other version of Nvidia drivers other than the recommended one, enter the following command line to install your desired driver package (for example, if you want to install nvidia-387 instead).
In my case here, Ubuntu 18.04 recommends to install the nvidia-390 Nvidia drivers.
