Whenever I update my system though the Update Manager, the Nvidia driver doesn't update. It gives me the following errors: (Also See Attached Photos) If anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it! Thanks!

My PC Details:

OS: Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon

GPU: GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2080 Super WINDFORCE OC 8G Graphics Card

An error occurred:

I figured out how to fix the problem. I put this command in the terminal, and then re-installed the updates. And the Nvidia Driver updated properly:

sudo apt-get -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-overwrite" install -f libnvidia-common-450-server
