Nvidia-setting doesn't work

I recently update the computer but not the graphics card and hard driver. I log in to ubuntu 18.04 fine. The nvidia-smi appears fine but it seems there is no process is working on it.

nvidia-settings has the following error:
(nvidia-settings:7289): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: 17:07:40.609: g_object_unref: assertion ‘G_IS_OBJECT (object)’ failed
** Message: 17:07:40.615: PRIME: No offloading required. Abort
** Message: 17:07:40.615: PRIME: is it supported? no

It has no iGPU but another Nvidia Quadro GPU but not visible to the 495 driver anyway/

How to fix the problem?

Drivers seems installed properly since my CUDA programme runs fine. But there are not any graphics program running on it.

I can see Xorg on top process, it might be running a cpu display manager I think …

Hi, I have same problem, how do I attach bug report here?

For what it can help, in my case, eventually I make it work but the warning message still persisit. Probably I just go with it …
