I have a very old droplet and I am trying to sort out the kernel management but everything is failing. When I power off the droplet and go to the kernel option, the “change” button is greyed out - I can not select any options. So, how can I change my kernel?
$ uname -r 3.13.0-32-generic $ lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS Release: 18.04 Codename: bionic
grub has all of the correct details but I can not see how to get my droplet to use grub.
# update-grub Sourcing file `/etc/default/grub' Generating grub configuration file ...

How can I sort this mess out please?
