The kernel is installed, but you have to go to synaptic and search for the Linux headers for 3.0.
When you input the term "linux-headers" hit search and it will bring up the list of headers for the 3.0 kernel.
Check each header you need to install and then proceed to install said headers.
Once it is completed, exit out of synaptic and reboot the computer, and once it gets to "grub", you should see a list of installed linux-headers, with the 3.0 headers being at the top of the list.
Let the computer boot normally, and once it is back online you should be using the latest 3.0 kernel.
