“apt upgrade” wants to upgrade 2 packages and install 4 extra packages (the 4.4.0-31 kernel). “apt-get upgrade” tells me the same 2 packages are held back. (linux-headers-generic-lts-xenial and linux-image-generic-ltx-xenial)
The control panel on the website says “The kernel for this Droplet is managed internally and cannot be changed from the control panel.”
I don’t know the inner workings of a VPS. Should I upgrade the kernel using apt, or will this break my droplet? For that matter, how are kernel updates managed on Digital Ocean?
