  Nvidia driver options are not easy to understand

Status in software-properties package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have just upgraded to Ubuntu 18.04.3LTS, and the options I have for
  my nvidia driver are shown in the screenshot.

  I dont understand why I have the option for an older, untested version
  of the driver as well as the latest version. Also, the wording of
  these options is highly technical and not very meaningful to someone
  who just wants the latest driver.

  I would be better to have just 2 options, with labels more meaningful to the 
end user like:
  * Latest official Nvidia driver (proprietary)
  * Latest Nouveau driver (open source)
