    I noted a discrepancy on the download link on our docs, so you are redirected to the driver download site. The correct link to download cuda libraries and the driver would be


    If you prefer running DEB packages, change the option from run file local, and follow the provided instructions.

    Anyway, you don't need to install the cuda package to run out database, but you need just the driver.

    you can try to use this command

    ubuntu-drivers devices

    on my Ubuntu 20.04 the output is like that

    == /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:03.1/0000:09:00.0 ==
    modalias : pci:v000010DEd00001E07sv000010DEsd000012FAbc03sc00i00
    vendor   : NVIDIA Corporation
    model    : TU102 [GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Rev. A]
    driver   : nvidia-driver-418-server - distro non-free
    driver   : nvidia-driver-450-server - distro non-free
    driver   : nvidia-driver-510 - distro non-free recommended
    driver   : nvidia-driver-470-server - distro non-free
    driver   : nvidia-driver-470 - distro non-free
    driver   : xserver-xorg-video-nouveau - distro free builtin

    to check which drivers are available, then install a driver with apt

    sudo apt install nvidia-driver-470 

    then reboot, and check if everything is ok with the nvidia-smi command, as suggested by the docs

    Nvidia dropped the support of K80 since 495 (?), so pay attention to which driver you are installing; anyway, the Kepler arch has some limitations so that some queries would run slower than Pascal, Volta, or Turing.

    If you want to install the driver downloaded from the Nvidia website, please choose the Linux-64 install from the site https://www.nvidia-com/downloads

    Select Linux 64 bit, search, download the file, change the permission, and run the file.

    The file name in your case should be

    Let me know if you have succeeded installing the driver
