You should do a clean-up of the old nvidia packages:

sudo dpkg --purge nvidia-367 nvidia-375 nvidia-384 nvidia-opencl-icd-340 nvidia-opencl-icd-367 nvidia-opencl-icd-375 nvidia-opencl-icd-384

if this does not help, I suggest deleting the offending link
sudo rm /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libGL.so.1.distrib

Jeroen Oudshoorn (jayofelony) said : #12

Ok, so I did both you said. And it still isn't solved.

Jeroen Oudshoorn (jayofelony) said : #13

sudo apt-get remove libnvidia-ifr1-390 libnvidia-ifr1-390:i386 nvidia-driver-390
followed by
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

This is the solution.
