This is expected and the correct behaviour.

That card has just been dropped to the legacy drivers and is no longer supported by the nvidia package, you now need to use the 470 series drivers from the AUR instead.


No, it didn't "fix" anything. It just shifted the brokeness one space to the right. - jasonwryan

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia-utils-495.44-6 upgrade breaks X

I'm running into what looks like the same problem, but it doesn't look like my graphics card has been moved to the legacy drivers.

My graphics card model is: NVIDIA Corporation TU116M [GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Mobile] (rev a1)

It is not listed as a legacy card, although I notice that vordoo's card is listed there.

According to NVIDIA's website, my driver is 470.86. So should I be using the 470 drivers from AUR?

No your card will definitely still be supported by the latest driver and you should make a new thread with a xorg log and a journal to identify whatever the issue is.
