    3.8.6, so far, so good.

    Now, the question is:
    How to remove the 'old' 3.8.0, or, at least, prevent it from wasting my bandwidth with future 'updates'?

    I mean, is it safe to just remove if from synaptic?

    Thanks in advance

    If you have at least two working kernel versions in your setup, you can safely remove all others.
    And yes, you can very well remove them with synaptic (mark for complete removal).

    Since Ubuntu uses grub, and if it works anything like Gentoo/Arch your kernel/bzImage should be located in your /boot folder.
    simply do grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg, now if your distro hasn't made ganges than it's grub2-mkconfig but it's the same as before.

    Than you can safely remove older kernels, also don't forget to do mkinitcpio -p linux otherwise you may have issues.
