Cannot install cuDNN on Ubuntu 22.04, says GPG key not installed

Install Cuda using the following code:

sudo mv /etc/apt/preferences.d/cuda-repository-pin-600
sudo dpkg -i cuda-repo-ubuntu2204-11-7-local_11.7.1-515.65.01-1_amd64.deb
sudo cp /var/cuda-repo-ubuntu2204-11-7-local/cuda-*-keyring.gpg /usr/share/keyrings/
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y install cuda

Seems cuda is successfully installed on my device, because when running nvidia-smi it shows:

But when I download cuDNN from nvidia and install it with sudo dpkg -i cudnn-local-repo-ubuntu2204- it says:

prepare to decompress cudnn-local-repo-ubuntu2204-  ...
decompressing cudnn-local-repo-ubuntu2204- (1.0-1) and overriding (1.0-1) ...
setup cudnn-local-repo-ubuntu2204- (1.0-1) ...

The public CUDA GPG key does not appear to be installed.
To install the key, run this command:
sudo cp /var/cudnn-local-repo-ubuntu2204- /usr/share/keyrings/

Of course I ran the mentioned code. And I did some research:

(base) desmond@PlanckUbuntu:~$ ls /var/cudnn-local-repo-ubuntu2204-                      libcudnn8_8.5.0.96-1+cuda11.7_amd64.deb          Local.md5      Packages.gz

(base) desmond@PlanckUbuntu:~$ ls /usr/share/keyrings/
cuda-F83D2C4C-keyring.gpg         ubuntu-advantage-esm-infra-trusty.gpg  ubuntu-archive-removed-keys.gpg

ubuntu-advantage-esm-apps.gpg     ubuntu-archive-keyring.gpg

Then I reran the installing script. It doesn’t work. I did a reboot and retry. Still no luck.

Any idea how can I install cuDNN in this case?

Turns out what I need to run is:

sudo cp /var/cudnn-local-repo-ubuntu2204- /usr/share/keyrings/cuda-archive-keyring.gpg

Don’t know why they didn’t give correct error message/
