Upgrading the kernel in Ubuntu

Upgrade of the kernel in Debian or Ubuntu Linux

Use apt-get command. First find your kernel version:
 uname -r

Next find available kernel images:

 apt-cache search linux-image

Now install kernel by explicitly specifying version number:
 apt-get install linux-image-x.x.x-xx


 sudo apt-get install linux-image-x.x.x-xx

Search for kernel  header version (must to use in Vmware)

 apt-cache search linux-headers-$(uname -r)
Install linux-header package

 sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)

Let's now configure all packages that are still unconfigured :
 sudo dpkg --configure -a
