Unable to locate package nvidia-driver

Briefly describe your issue below:
Hello, i just installed Parrot Security os on my laptop and i was following guide on how to install nvidia-drivers https://docs.parrotlinux.org/info/gpu-drivers/

But i got error after running the install command (sudo apt update && sudo apt install nvidia-driver)

could someone please help me with this issue or should i try using opensource drvers and is there any difference?

i tried updating os and running sudo apt update and sudo apt upgrade i still have the same issue should i try using aptitude instead of apt?
