Debian update / NVIDIA drivers ?

Yesterday Debian asked me to confirm the installation of new packages, as it does on a nearly monthly basis. I don't check them all one by one obviously. Today the computer starts and gets stuck at a ominous message, "Oh no ! Something has gone wrong, the system cannot recover". I can hear master Yoda commenting with a desperate voice "so certain are you", I hope he is right. I am nothing near an experienced Linux user, I began using Debian last year and it has been a great experience except for anything related to my NVIDIA graphic cards and its drivers.

Here is what `journalctm -p err` logs :

Also on this same forum there is another question related to the same message but the answer seems unrelated to my situation (

Thank you for your time

It looks like the nouveau driver is trying to load. So, if the nVidia driver worked before, you'll probably have to reinstall it.
