Steam won’t start on ubuntu 20.04 64-bit with nvidia 460 drivers installed

I have steam installed from flatpak, and in the recent months this is what it outputs whenever I try to run it:

Looks like steam didn't shutdown cleanly, scheduling immediate update check

I have all the :i386 versions of nvidia packages I could find installed (nvidia-driver-460:i386 is not among them, sadly). Do I have to go back to mesa in order to have Steam working again? mesa and nvidia drivers don’t work concurrently for me.
