I have an issue not being able to upgrade the Kernel of my Mint 17.2!
Few months ago, my fresh install of Mint 17.1 Cinnamon 64-b was okay with Kernel 3.13.0-37-generic and nVidia driver 331.113.
Few days ago, successful upgrade to Mint 17.2 FR Cinnamon 64-b using this article: How to upgrade to Linux Mint 17.2.
* Additional info*
- Although Linux Mint 17.2 features a newer kernel, this upgrade does not change the kernel on your behalf. This is a decision only you should take. Should you decide to upgrade to 17.2’s recommended kernel you can do so by applying the “linux-kernel-generic” update, post-upgrade.
- Your grub menu won’t be automatically updated on your behalf. After you rebooted the computer, you can trigger that update with the following command: “sudo update-grub”.
So, few hours ago, seems to be a "successful" upgrade of the kernel to v.3.16.0-38-generic, but in fact after a reboot and a new sudo update-grub, still and only the old (current) version of the kernel is available!
I have checked in mintUpdate (4.9.3), View - Linux Kernel and v.3.16.0-38-generic (recommended) it's well installed but not charged!
So, I ran once again:
Code: Select all

What is wrong? Any idea?
