I did:

sudo apt purge libgl1-nvidia-glx libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386 nvidia-driver-libs nvidia-driver-libs:i386

It said that i386 packages where not installed, other removed.

Now, installing still has issues:

sudo apt install nvidia-driver-libs nvidia-driver-libs:i386

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  nvidia-driver-libs : Depends: libgl1-nvidia-glvnd-glx (= 375.82-8) but it is not going to be installed or
                                libgl1-nvidia-glx (= 375.82-8) but it is not going to be installed
  nvidia-driver-libs:i386 : Depends: libgl1-nvidia-glvnd-glx:i386 (= 375.82-8) but it is not going to be installed or
                                     libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386 (= 375.82-8) but it is not going to be installed

Please note it's on Testing, not Sid if that makes difference.
