I have the same issue. It did work for me three weeks ago. Is there another download link/source?

Hi. I am waiting for the new drivers too. I guess, that you can look here Index of /compute/cuda/repos/wsl-ubuntu/x86_64 (nvidia.com)
Looks like old ones are there.

I found 465.21 here. Not sure whether this is the latest version. But based on this note

Note:
NVIDIA is aware of a specific installation issue reported on mobile platforms with the WIP driver 465.12 posted on 11/16/2020. A known workaround will be to disable and reenable the GPU adapter from device manager at system start. We are working on a fix for this issue and will have an updated driver soon.
