NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver

I’ve just installed Ubuntu 20.04.5 LTS on a new computer (fresh build) and the driver was installed automatically during ubuntu installation but it seems not working for some reason. Here is the log file generated.

I re install ubuntu but hitting the same problem. Here is the new log file. @generix any guess what would be the problem?
I have a new GPU RTX 3060.

I’ve installed ubuntu 22 but I’m getting the same problem. Here is the log file from ubuntu 22-04-1.

I finally got it to work by changing the Nvidia driver version from the recommended one to another version.
