Why isn’t there a meta package for the latest stable Linux kernel and 450 series Nvidia driver?
I second this. This is required for certain software to work, for example obs:
[h264_nvenc @ 0x55f873b8c980] Driver does not support the required nvenc API version. Required: 10.0 Found: 9.1 [h264_nvenc @ 0x55f873b8c980] The minimum required Nvidia driver for nvenc is (unknown) or newer

I solved by removing the old meta package.
pacman -R linux-latest-nvidia-440xx
sudo mhwd -i pci video-nvidia-450xx worked, thanks. The question is left unanswered so far, though. Factually, it is a migration defect. I reported it on gitlab.
