I've updated to 13.10 from 13.04 and I've problem with linux headers.

this is the kernel version:

uname -a 
Linux xxx-dell 3.8.0-32-generic #47-Ubuntu SMP Tue Oct 1 22:35:23 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Li

and those are installed headers:

dpkg -l | grep headers
linux-headers-3.11.0-12                   3.11.0-12.19
linux-headers-3.11.0-12-generic           3.11.0-12.19

I've tried to install headers for 3.8, but this ends with error:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-3.8.0-32-generic
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package linux-headers-3.8.0-32-generic is not available, but is referred to by another package.

How can I download matching headers to my kernel? Is is possible that upgrade process did not update to last kernel version?

Looks like the package was left out of the saucy repository. For what its worth I downloaded them manual from these links and installed.
