    Thanks for posting your question in the Microsoft Q&A forum.

    To resolve this issue, consider trying the following steps:

    1. Run sudo apt update to update the package lists, and then run sudo apt upgrade to upgrade the installed packages to their latest versions.
    2. Run sudo apt clean to clean the package cache.
    3. Run sudo apt autoclean to remove any obsolete packages
    4. Try installing the specific versions of the required dependencies manually using sudo apt install linux-modules-nvidia-550-6.5.0-1019-azure nvidia-kernel-common-550
    • Check if there are any third-party repositories that might be causing conflicts with the official Ubuntu repositories.

    As an alternative, you can try using the Nvidia installer script to install the drivers. download the appropriate driver package for your A100 GPU from the Nvidia website. run the installer script using sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-<version>.run.
