Question

Incorrect Ubuntu Version Displayed for Droplets

I’m currently updating several Droplets to 16.04. After completing the upgrade, choosing the new kernel, and restoring network as described here https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/how-do-i-upgrade-kernel-to-4-4-0-xx, Digital Ocean is still displaying the original Ubuntu version on the Droplets page, as shown here.

Not a big deal at the moment, but as I continue to add new droplets, it would be ideal if this actually updated to show the current Ubuntu version so I can know if droplets need to be upgraded or not - began running an update on the Droplet listed as 15.10 only to discover I’d already upgraded it to 16.03. Is this a bug that will be addressed?
