Ubuntu Cuda 8 Update to Patch 2

After right install cuda for ubuntu x86_64
I would like to know the right way to install the Patch 2 (Released Jun 26, 2017)

If you used the runfile installer method to install CUDA, then download the runfile installer for the patch and run it.

If you used the package manager method, then the install process is essentially the same as what you used to install CUDA from deb, substituting the name of the patch deb file:


sudo dpkg -i cuda-repo-ubuntu1604-8-0-local-cublas-performance-update_8.0.61-1_amd64.deb
sudo apt-get update  
sudo apt-get install cuda

(of course you have to download the deb or runfile installer from http://www.nvidia.com/getcuda first)

OK we assume to select Installer Type: deb(local)
and all work fine on first and second step but when launching:
3. sudo apt-get install cuda
they don’t do nothing more
there’s one way to see if Patch 2 is applied and working


Concerning the last comment, it seems that this works:

sudo apt-get upgrade cuda # the upgrade is the key word

from: https://askubuntu.com/questions/944219/how-to-complete-a-dpkg-cublas-patch-update-to-cuda-8-installation-in-16-04

At least in my case it did download and installed things.
