    Linux-Headers are not the same on two computers

    I have a laptop that has Linux-headers 3.2.0.37 and the update manager says system is up to date. My desktop has Linux-Headers 3.2.0.45. Both are 64-bit, laptop is Intel CPU, and the desktop is AMD CPU.

    The question is why are they not the same version of Linux-headers?

    Hi

    On both machines, can you post the output of

    Code:
    uname -r && dpkg -l | grep linux-headers
    Kind regards

    Re: Linux-Headers are not the same on two computers

    Hi

    You are running two different kernel releases between your desktop and laptop.

    That, as i am sure you know, is why the headers are out.

    The question is why

    Have you pinned any packages ?

    Please post the output of (on the laptop)

    Code:
    apt-mark showhold
    On the desktop and the latop can you please post the output of

    Code:
    grep "^[^#]" /etc/apt/sources.list{,.d/*}
    On the desktop and laptop, can you also post the output of

    Code:
    apt-cache show linux-image | grep -i filename
    Kind regards
