    do the dist upgrade after the update, i.e.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y

    I don't see any errors. You are fine. Probably there are no updates to install at the moment.
    What do you get with, sudo apt-get upgrade ?

    Yes, you are right, I also found that, there is no error in the sudo apt-get update output, but I'm still facing same problem.

    sudo apt-get upgrade output is here.

    Code:
    audity@auditypc:~$ sudo apt-get upgrade
    [sudo] password for audity: 
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    The following packages have been kept back:
      linux-generic-pae linux-headers-generic-pae linux-image-generic-pae
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 3 not upgraded.
    audity@auditypc:~$
    Point to be noted here that, three packages kept back here and I'm facing problem just with these 3 packages. So, is it somehow related with the problem?

    Run:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    If you still see that the packages are held back:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux
    If the problem continues:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-generic-pae linux-headers-generic-pae linux-image-generic-pae.
    Install 'Synaptic' Package Manager, if you haven't already. It makes things easier with GUI.

    EDIT: If you still have the problem after doing all the above then change the 'server' to MAIN in "Software Center" -> EDIT -> Software Sources.

    WOW!!! sudo apt-get install linux worked for me. It's perfect now. Really thanks to fantab for your continuous A to Z support. Could you please explain here that, what was the problem and how this solution worked for that?

    Good luck.
