What you noted in the previous email is correct - the problem appears
to be due to having both i386 and amd64 libglvnd0-nvidia.

There are other problems with that package as noted elsewhere - namely
not all symbols are exposed, for whatever reason. Although it's an open
source library we can't know since it's distributed as a binary blob,
we don't know how Nvidia builds it.

libglvnd0 is the equivalent - they are built from the same source so
the -nvidia specific ones are getting deprecated and should be removed
in favour of the "system" ones in -8.

Kind regards,
