Cannot get Nvidia driver for RTX 2080 Ti for Ubuntu 18.04/16.04 LTS for CANADA!

I download several releases of NVIDIA driver for RTX 2080 Ti for Ubuntu 18.04/16.04 LTS.
The following releases:
Were downloaded and I tried to install each one of them with no success.
The warning is: it doesn’t appears that the NVIDIA GPU supported by NVIDIA Linux 418.56 graphic driver installed on your system and showing the Canadian flag.
If someone can send me the link for the Canadian driver to my email: that would be appreciated; this is to be used for a machine learning project. Thanks in advance.

Is this on bare metal or in a VM?
Please don’t use the .run installer.

The vendor finds the temperature reporting of these two graphics cards to be in the 30C range. Tests were done in the same case/configuration i.e. Tower case, liquid cooled CPU, two front 5" fans, one back 5" fan, 1000W power supply.

Note the fan speed is 0 or low on both cards.

Is the driver just reporting the incorrect temperature?

I should not that the vendor tested with Microsoft Windows OS using ASUS provided drivers. ASUS does not provide Linux drivers.
