Does upgrading from Ubuntu 14.04 to 16.04.1 via Destroy-Rebuild process convert droplet to new kernel management platform?
I understand that Digital Ocean has changed the way Ubuntu kernels are managed. I don’t know the details. However, I also understand that if I create a new droplet with Ubuntu 16.04.1, it will use the new kernel management platform.
My question is: if I destroy-rebuild an existing Ubuntu 14.04 droplet using the base Ubuntu 16.04.1 image, will the droplet then be using the new kernel management platform?
