nvidia-graphics-drivers-460 went into updates at the same time as proposed

Asked by Sønke Lorenzen on 2021-01-08

I noticed that I get the nvidia-graphics-drivers-460 as an upgrade from 455 on my 20.10 PC today, on the day after Nvidia released the first non beta of it.

First I thought that I must had the PPA on, or proposed, or my mirror was messed up so I switched to the main server, but the packages do come from the normal groovy updates

apt policy nvidia-dkms-455
  Installed: 455.45.01-0ubuntu0.20.10.1
  Candidate: 460.32.03-0ubuntu0.20.10.1
  Version table:
     460.32.03-0ubuntu0.20.10.1 500
        500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu groovy-updates/restricted amd64 Packages
 *** 455.45.01-0ubuntu0.20.10.1 100
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

And not only for groovy, but also bionic and focal according to https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nvidia-graphics-drivers-460

Is that really the intention? Then https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NVidiaUpdates needs some updating.

And should it not have replaced 450 instead?

Anyway I am going to upgrade and test it now.

There where several security problems in 455 fixed with 460.32.03 https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5142

Can you help with this problem?
