Auto install proprietary drivers button missing

Hello.

Post your terminal/konsole in- and output as text (no pictures) from:

I don't have any in or output from my terminal.  This is a fresh installation.  Upon booting the installation media (usb) my system hung on "Plymouth.." when I chose to boot up allowing proprietary drivers - so I then chose open source.  Now that I've rebooted and updated the system there is no option to auto install proprietary drivers under Garuda setting manager/hardware.  The button is missing!  I've installed this distribution on other computers without this issue.  

Thanks for your help

I didn't understand the garuda-inxi at first.  Heres the printout:

Without it, you will not receive any help from the Garuda team or your topic is likely to be closed without notice.

Before you open a new help request, read relevant sections of the Arch and Garuda wiki.
Thoroughly search your issue and any error messages in the forum and on the web.

Report everything you have already attempted to solve your problem.

Most likely because its an unsupported older nvidia card. Only can guess without you putting the garuda-inxi in Konsole (or terminal of your choice) and following the whole text block there...
