Kernel Error in installing Driver 430.09 in Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

So, I had some problems with Nvidia Drivers 440 and 435. I was recommended to use the 430.09, however when installing I’m getting the error “An error occurred while performing the step: “Building kernelmodules”. See /var/log/nvidia-installer.log for details.”. You can see the log here Any ideas?

Dell G3 15 3590
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 with 4GB GDDR5 graphics
9th Generation Intel Core i5-9300H (8MB Cache, up to 4.1 GHz, 4 cores)
8GB 2x4GB DDR4 2666MHz

The 430 driver is outdated and incompatible with a 5.4 kernel. Rather install the latest driver and try to fix the issues you’re having with that.

So, the problem with the newest driver is that there is a loading symbol from the dell loading screen that freezes in my screen. The system boots normally, but there’s this loading symbol flickering, see: Curiously, the symbol doesn’t appear when I take a print screen.

Edit: Also, even with the 440 proprietary driver, if my grub does not have the “nomodeset” line, the system doesn’t boot.

Please run as root with the 440 driver installed and attach the resulting nvidia-bug-report.log.gz file to your post. You will have to rename the file ending to something else since the forum software doesn’t accept .gz files (nifty!).

Here is the log

I need to say, however that I installed the 440 driver, booted, and the loading symbol is not freezing anymore. I booted another time to make sure, and looks like my problem was solved. But i really don’t know how hahaha. So, if you take a look to my log and found something problematic, let me know. But, i guess eveything is working good now. Thank you.
