Hello again. Sorry for my bad English. These lines appear because you are missing the firmware for nvidia.
From the user’s point of view, a firmware is just some data that is needed by some piece of hardware in order to function properly. The driver for that hardware typically loads the firmware on the device as part of its initialization.
In the Linux kernel, the drivers are all using a standardized interface (request_firmware) to retrieve the firmware before sending it to the device. Thanks to this standardization, it’s possible to either embed the firmware in the kernel or to have it request the firmware from user-space when needed.
So, using a quick search I found this:
Code: Select all
apt search nvidia/gp104/gr/sw_nonctx.bin
Sorting... Done
Full Text Search... Done
firmware-misc-nonfree/stable,now 20190114-2
  Binary firmware for various drivers in the Linux kernel

So you need to install this package:
Code: Select all
firmware-misc-nonfree

And to put it simply, install the package
Code: Select all
firmware-linux-nonfree

because package
Code: Select all
firmware-misc-nonfree
depends on
Code: Select all
firmware-linux-nonfree

And reboot.
OS: Debian 10.1 Buster / WM: fvwm

If you're running Buster, the only line you need is:
Code: Select all
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ buster main contrib non-free

Comment out the rest.

Don't spread this rubbish. You at least need security repos as well, unless you never connect to any networks.
