Yesterday my users started reporting an error when running nvidia-smi:
Failed to initialize NVML: Driver/library version mismatch
Additionally, users report the following error when trying to run scripts:
kernel version 367.57.0 does not match DSO version 375.39.0
I see from my apt logs that yesterday morning an automated update installed 375.39 nvidia drivers. Apparently it was marked as a security update. Now nvidia-367 and nvidia-375 packages are both present in dpkg, but nvidia-367 is now described as “Transitional package for nvidia-375”.
We’re running Ubuntu 16.04.
