I had upgraded to Ubuntu 12.10 beta from 12.04 LTS. I kept updating every recommended update suggested by Software Updater. All updates were successful.

Yesterday, 12.10 stable is formally released and my software updater has applied all updates without any error/warning. But looks like my Ubuntu has been not fully upgraded to 12.10. For example the Linux kernel is still in 3.2.x and not upgraded to 3.5.0. (Screens attached).

PS: Spam prevention mechanism not allowing to attach images. Just adding the commands:

Distributor ID: Ubuntu

Could find the exact reason why the dist-upgrade did not upgraded Linux kernel from 3.2.x to 3.5.x

I installed the Linux kernel 3.5.18 manually through Synaptic Package manager.
