I got the same thing upgrading hardy to lucid Xubuntu. It also removes the hardware driver and installs nouveau instead.

This report is being closed because it has been fixed in the final version release of Ubuntu 10.04. It now correctly updates the video driver to nvidia-current.

Changed in jockey (Ubuntu):
status: New → Fix Released
