I am attempting to install Cuda on new Ubuntu 18.04 installation that has a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GPU installed.
I started the installation process by attempting to install the Nvidia 410 driver using the following steps:
$ sudo apt update $ sudo apt upgrade $ ubuntu-drivers devices $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa $ sudo apt install nvidia-driver-410
After the installation completes, I perform a reboot to confirm successful installation by running nvidia-smi however the response is:
NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.
I ran sudo lshw -c display, this is the output:

Finally I ran sudo nvidia-bug-report.sh and attached the output.
Any assistance to get past this hurdle would be appreciated.
