Anyone know if it is mandatory to upgrade the kernel. I am still using feisty 7.04 because that is the version that works with my laptop hardware.

I have the 2.6.20-15-generic kernel, I received update to upgrade to from upgrade manager.

I have seen people loose their login screens and unable to boot because of kernel updates, Is it mandatory that I update? and Why?

If you are satisfied with your current kernel, stay with it.

You can upgrade and idf doesn´t work right remove it in synaptic by typing in dearch box linux-image and find and remove it.
