CUDA 11.3 installation failure on Ubuntu 18.04

Hi,

I have installed Ubuntu 18.04 desktop on HP laptop with Graphics card GM107GLM [Quadro M2000M]:

I have been trying to installed CUDA Toolkit 11.3, by following the the instructions in the link:
[CUDA Toolkit 11.3 Update 1 Downloads | NVIDIA Developer](https://CUDA 11.3 installation)

$ wget https://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/repos/ubuntu1804/x86_64/cuda-ubuntu1804.pin
$ sudo mv cuda-ubuntu1804.pin /etc/apt/preferences.d/cuda-repository-pin-600
$ wget https://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/11.3.1/local_installers/cuda-repo-ubuntu1804-11-3-local_11.3.1-465.19.01-1_amd64.deb
$ sudo dpkg -i cuda-repo-ubuntu1804-11-3-local_11.3.1-465.19.01-1_amd64.deb
$ sudo apt-key add /var/cuda-repo-ubuntu1804-11-3-local/7fa2af80.pub
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get -y install cuda

But the last command failed as mentioned as follows:
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies.
 cuda : Depends: cuda-11-3 (>= 11.3.1) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Could some body tell me why it is failing and how I can fix this? Is the problem with Graphics Card? Driver version? Or CUDA version? I need to fix this as soon as possible.

Thanks
Amin
