Yes it does, but once I have said I do not want to install the
nvidia-driver package, it then stops with the nvidia packages and
several other unrelated packages partially installed.

I would have understood, that it stopped, allowing me to do the other
upgrades, keeping the nvidia stuff (and what depends on it) at the
current version then have a look at the alternatives for the graphic
drivers. However, here I got a system in a dirty state, and no standard
way to get it clean (how can I say "Ok revert the partial installation
and keep the installed version" ?).

I installed the nvidia-legacy-39xx, but I do like doing things like that
in a hurry,
