nvidia-173 fails to install

software-properties (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I think software-properties should be tagged in this since it offers to install nvidia-173 (but fails to do so). One of these two packages should be changed so that the driver is installed or so it isn't offered.

Terminal output:

"root@sempron:~# LANG=EN && apt-get install nvidia-173
