I can't install my graphics drivers

I’ve been trying to install my graphics drivers via the settings manager but it keeps failing. I get this error:

Can anyone please help me.

Yes. linux58-nvidia-340xx is not in the repo.
You should try another kernel. Pretty sure they newer kernels do not support the older nvidia drivers, so try kernel 5.4 (it’s an LTS).

I’m using Linux Kernel 5.4.74-. It still doesn’t work

Uninstall kernel 5.8.

Thank you soo much. It worked :slight_smile:
