New to Ubuntu. Experienced with CentOS and yum. I have 12.04 LTS Desktop 64-bit for now and I'm trying to wean myself off of all the GUIs so that I can make a move to Server so as to boost my VM capabilities.
Question: How can I tell from the CLI whether a Kernel update is available? The GUI Update Manager says I'm due for a kernel update (126.96.36.199.31 -> 188.8.131.52.37). But 'sudo apt-get -s upgrade' doesn't say the kernel would be upgraded. All it says is that linux-generic, linux-headers-generic, and linux-image-generic have been kept back. I've also tried 'sudo apt-get update', but it doesn't make any difference. I'm sure I'm missing the appropriate command here. If it weren't for Update Manager I wouldn't know that there are kernel updates available. How would I know? Thanks.
