Ubuntu – Ubuntu 13.10, kernel still 3.8.0-31-generic


I updated from 13.04 to 13.10 but uname -r still says I am on 3.8.0-31-generic.
How can i fix this and get 3.11 or 3.12 ?

Happened exactly the same, I noticed that now that I had to compile wacom drivers. For whichever reason, the package linux-image-generic was not installed (probably ocurred during the upgrade from 13.04 to 13.10).

sudo apt-get install linux-image-generic 

seems to correct the fact (will modify this if not).

You can also do

sudo apt-get install linux-generic 

to automatically install the kernel headers, too (thanks to Lars Nyström).

(obviously if you have -rt or -lowlatency kernels you have to adapt this to your case)
