I have this problem:

I upgraded my system from 12.04->12.10->13.04->13.10... Everything is actually working fine.

I just have one problem: GRUB 2 is still loading a old linux image:

~# uname -r
3.2.0-53-generic

These images are installed

~#  dpkg --list | grep linux-image
ii  linux-image                         3.11.0.12.13                          
amd64        Generic Linux kernel image.
ii  linux-image-3.11.0-12-generic       3.11.0-12.19                        
amd64        Linux kernel image for version 3.11.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP
ii  linux-image-3.2.0-53-generic        3.2.0-53.81                      
amd64        Linux kernel image for version 3.2.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP
ii  linux-image-extra-3.11.0-12-generic 3.11.0-12.19                        
amd64        Linux kernel extra modules for version 3.11.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP
ii  linux-image-generic                 3.11.0.12.13                       
amd64        Generic Linux kernel image

The menuentries in grub.cfg

~# cat /boot/grub/grub.cfg | grep "menuentry '"
menuentry 'Ubuntu' --class ubuntu --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os   
$menuentry_id_option 'gnulinux-simple-eaf519ef-499e-4269-adeb-97827ecf156e' {
    menuentry 'Ubuntu, with Linux 3.11.0-12-generic' --class ubuntu --class  
gnu-linux --class gnu --class os $menuentry_id_option 'gnulinux-3.11.0-12-generic- 
advanced-eaf519ef-499e-4269-adeb-97827ecf156e' {
menuentry 'Ubuntu, with Linux 3.11.0-12-generic (recovery mode)' --class ubuntu  
--class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os $menuentry_id_option 'gnulinux-3.11.0-12- 
generic-recovery-eaf519ef-499e-4269-adeb-97827ecf156e' {
menuentry 'Ubuntu, with Linux 3.2.0-53-generic' --class ubuntu --class gnu-linux  
--class gnu --class os $menuentry_id_option 'gnulinux-3.2.0-53-generic-advanced- 
eaf519ef-499e-4269-adeb-97827ecf156e' {
menuentry 'Ubuntu, with Linux 3.2.0-53-generic (recovery mode)' --class ubuntu  
--class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os $menuentry_id_option 'gnulinux-3.2.0-53- 
generic-recovery-eaf519ef-499e-4269-adeb-97827ecf156e' {
menuentry 'Memory test (memtest86+)' {
menuentry 'Memory test (memtest86+, serial console 115200)' {

Default is pointing to 0

~# cat /boot/grub/grub.cfg | grep default=
set default="0"

Any ideas?

Seems that Grub is falling back to the old image, as there is problem with newest one.

Any way to get a logging from Grub. The machine is a remote server without a serial console.

THANKS in advance.

Best regards, Jens
