Ubuntu 16.04 nvidia-persistenced not playing nice with nvidia-430 or nvidia-418

I tried to install nvidia-persistencd but apt keeps asking to remove nvidia-430/nvidia-418. If i try to install the nvidia-4xx drivers first, nvidia-persistenced gets removed.

nvidia-persistenced is included in the nvidia-430 package, so there’s no need to install it on its own and the conflict is expected. Don’t know where you’re installing it from btw.
