Current Ubuntu Kernel doesn't match
Hi, I now keep my server updated and so am now running Ubuntu 15.10.
uname -ir: 4.2.0-34-generic x86_64
When I login the DO control panel is says my current kernel is: 14.10 x64 vmlinuz-3.16.0-41-generic
I’ve tried changing it to: 15.10 vmlinuz-4.2.0-34-generic
It still says the current kernel is 14.10…
I’ve tried rebooting, poweroff, etc but nothing gets the two things to match up.
I did have to change the repositories a while ago because I hadn’t updated for such a long time that the DO files were archived so I was stuck on a really old version of Ubuntu. I therefore stopped using the DO repositories and redirected directly to Ubuntu’s own servers.
Is this the reason why the kernel’s aren’t matching up?
Is there a way to fix this problem? Is it actually a problem? What are the potential problems (or benefits) of my setup?
