    Re: Problem updating ubuntu (unmet dependencies + mismatch on package)

    Ok. Well my system 'works' now in the sense that the Xorg driver is back into business. But I *really* would like to use the nvida-390 driver. In the Driver Manager this driver is seen as recommended but I try to select it it simply switches back to the XOrg one. Any way to use the 390 driver?

    Thanks

    Seems that things have gotten better and I managed to partially solve my problem. The nvidia-390 driver is now installed and is apparently being used. However performance is very bad compared to earlier. While I used to have consistently about 60 fps in (for example) Minecraft it is now about 10-11 fps. Am I still not using the correct drivers? I did remove that ppa where I used to get my drivers from but I'm not sure I can safely use that. Hints are welcome. Thanks

    Edit: the nvidia packages are *still* giving issues... I can't imagine that I'm the only ubuntu user with nvidia cards? How do other people solve this?

    Sorry for bumping this but I'm getting a bit desperate here. I'm happy with two solutions. Either getting the proprietary nvidia drivers working on bionic or else a way to revert my system back to the previous stable version of ubuntu. As it is now my system is basically unusable for what I need to do.

    Thanks!

    By now you could have done a 100 fresh installs, why not just do that & be done with the problems?

    Well a fresh install wipes everything I guess. That's of course possible but it is a lot of work. Also I guess I was hoping for a solution with bionic too. But ok. I think I'll have to do that then. Thanks for the reply

    Never have wanted to move to another house just because I had to fix something being that even hard thing to do...
    But, re-install could be done (and it has been done) with keeping almost everything as it was, just in a new environment...

    Re: Problem updating ubuntu (unmet dependencies + mismatch on package)

    I have one remaining question though. Where can I follow progress on support for nvidia on bionic? What's the best place/resource for this kind of information?

    As root:

    for FILE in $(dpkg-divert --list | grep nvidia-340 | awk '{print $3}'); do dpkg-divert --remove $FILE; done

    When it's done, you can:

    apt --fix-broken install
    apt update
    apt upgrade
