that the driver is installed does not automatically mean that it is used.

what do you get from: cat /proc/driver/nvidia/version

upgrading a distribution usually messes up add-on drivers. it may be
best to turn the external nvidia driver off, uninstall it make it all
work again w/o cuda and then re-install.
