My External Monitor Fails To Connect After Upgrade from nvidia-firmware-535-535.86.05:amd64 to nvidia-firmware-535-535.104.05:amd64

I upgraded my system with the standard “Software Updater” in Ubuntu 23.04. Some stuff was installed, not really sure what, and the updater requested I restart. After the restart my system seems to have trouble logging in, and hung a few times. After a few more restarts, I could finally log in, but my external monitor no longer connected.

I did some digging, and found that I had been using nvidia-firmware-535-535.86.05:amd64 (535.86.05-0ubuntu0.23.04.1), and my system had, through the “Additional Drivers” feature, updated to nvidia-firmware-535-535.104.05:amd64 (535.104.05-0ubuntu0.23.04.4).

I’d love to know how to downgrade my nvidia install, and maybe block the newer version from installing? My current solution has been to downgrade to 525.125.06-0ubuntu0.23.04.1, and this is OK, but I’d rather run the newer version.

Also FYI: the upload button on this form hangs indefinitely when trying to upload a bug report generated by, which requests sudo, unless you also chown (take over) the generated file.

This has been fixed as of 535.129.03
