How to update Linux Kernel from 4.4 to 4.8 on Ubuntu 16.04.2?
So I just created a new Ubuntu 16.04.2 droplet and I figured, hey, lets update to the latest kernel.
So I read online by Googling around that I have to run this:
sudo apt-get install linux-generic-hwe-16.04
Now the problem is that it wants to install some WiFi packages and thermald. I don’t know why.
What is the proper way to update the Linux Kernel from 4.4 to 4.8 on Ubuntu Server 16.04.2?
