I run:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

, and the linux kernel seemed to be updated to 3.2.0-31-generic successfully.

However, after I rebooted, I typed:

uname -a

, it showed :

Linux Albert-PC 3.2.0-29-generic #46-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jul 27 17:03:23 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Does that means the kernel wasn't being updated? I didn't encounter any error or warning messages during the upgrade or dist-upgrade.

Thanks for any help

Open a terminal, and type dpkg -l | grep linux-image. Post the results. –  January Sep 23 '12 at 11:39
    
the latest kernel would be 3.2.0-31 . Give me the output of uname -r –  penreturns Sep 23 '12 at 16:08
    
I've commented the output under samrtboyhw's answer –  AlbertK Sep 23 '12 at 16:16
    
Upon boot in your grub menu, what does it say? Ubuntu 3.XXX? –  balloons Oct 4 '12 at 20:13
    
It's 3.2.0-29, not the latest 3.2.0-31 –  AlbertK Oct 8 '12 at 17:11

The method is not the best. Please use uname -r to get the results. In my case I get

3.5.0-14-lowlatency

since I'm using Ubuntu Studio.
