Blender 2.92 disables gpu if an update is in queue

This happens 3th time now. First time i guessed i was updating before shutdown day before and guessed it is a needed process / compile. But today the same. Last night before closing blender all was fine, and gpu was working. Today gpu is disabled and i see an nvidia update in queue.

After update blender is not starting and i have to restart:

Read prefs: /home/re/.config/blender/2.92/config/userpref.blend
Error! Unsupported graphics card or driver.
A graphics card and driver with support for OpenGL 3.3 or higher is required.
The program will now close.

Nvidia Geforce 1660ti

Why is blender force me to update the gfx driver? Is this a normal behavior?

Are you sure Ubuntu doesn’t update packages automatically? Updating the nvidia driver requires a system reboot.
When that happens again, you look at the end of apt history/log file if you find nvidia related packages:

If you find these packages there then it means that they have been updated.
