How to restore a system after accidentally removing all kernels?

I was trying to remove some older versions of my kernel to decrease the GRUB menu size. And I removed even the newer ones by mistake and did sudo update-grub. Now, I get grub menu but have no linux options. Can someone please help me how to solve this?

You'd need to start a live CD, access your installation and install the kernel again.

Look at this answer about how to access your installation via chroot. Ignore step 6 and do this instead:

apt-get install linux-generic linux-headers-generic
