Nvidia 470 driver issue in Ubuntu 20.04 kernel 5.11.0-41-generic

I was using Ubuntu 20.04 with nvidia installed. After update, it installed kernel 5.11.0-41-generic and then I started facing issue in nvidia driver which reports “NVIDIA-SMI” has failed. I uninstalled the driver using sudo apt remove --purge '^nvidia-.*'and then re-installed after reboot with sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall which installed nvidia-470. However, after reboot, I see the same error. The bug report is attached. Please guide. Thanks.

The driver seems to be blacklisted. Please try:

  • run
sudo prime-select nvidia
  • run
grep nvidia /etc/modprobe.d/* /lib/modprobe.d/*

to find a file containing

blacklist nvidia

and remove it,
then run

sudo update-initramfs -u

and reboot.


Thanks a lot for the outstanding reply. I was trying for different methods without any success. Thanks again.
