Error when building nvidia-smi
Hello, I am new to using ubuntu so this may be a simple question answered, However I was running the linked code for installing the NGC but after running the first few lines of code provided, running nvidia-smi came up with nothing. So i tried going through the steps once more and i see an error that says: 0 upgraded, 19 newly installed, 0 to remove and 255 not upgraded. Need to get 4,217 kB/86.4 MB of archives. After this operation, 406 MB of additional disk space will be used.

Is it possible that you forgot the 'apt-key add' step from http://docs.nvidia.com/ngc/ngc-titan-setup-guide/index.html#task ? Be sure to run 'apt-get update' again after installing the key, also.

That is, to just add the key right after the "-" in example: apt-key add -##################### that gave me a gpg: conflicting commands (23) Failed writing body error

The hyphen at the end tells apt-key to read the key from stdin. Please see `man apt-key` for details.
