How to install NVIDIA 460.56 on Ubuntu:
Ubuntu now builds the latest NVIDIA drivers and pushes them through their own security and update repositories. However, publishing a new package will take some time.
You can just wait or use this reliable one Ubuntu PPA.. Finally, launch the Additional Drivers Utility to install and apply the new NVIDIA driver.
If you can’t wait, go to the NVIDIA website and download the .run installer package (not recommended for beginners).
