Black screen on Ubuntu 22.04 after installing nvidia driver 510

It’s a fresh install of Ubuntu 22.04, I installed nvidia drivers using ubuntu-drivers install, restarted and then I got the black screen with initramfs.

This is my bug report:
nvidia-bug-report.log.gz (132.8 KB)

There doesn’t seem to be any nvidia kernel module installed. Please post the output of
dpkg -l |grep nvidia
dkms status

Thanks for the reply, the original issue with the black screen was solved by update-initramfs. However, things don’t work quite well yet. Steam games, for example, start and the music and sounds play, but the screen is black and the mouse become useless.
This is the requested output:

$ dkms status

(empty for dkms)

Rather looks like you booted into the wrong kernel, the driver was installed for -39 butt you booted -37.

Here it is, good sir.

OK, so, I posted my last message and turned my laptop off. The next time I turned it on and booted into Linux, all I got was a black screen with a blinking cursor. I managed to log in (via Ctrl+Alt+F2) and created this other report

UPDATE: startx works

I followed this steps and I can log in again
