I have two Dell laptops:
- Laptop A ( Dell laptop ) which was upgraded to 20.04.3 LTS a year or so ago from 18.04.x LTS. This has:
Linux 5.4.0-96-generic #109-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jan 12 16:49:16 UTC 2022 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
- Laptop B, a new Dell laptop which had Windows11 and wiped it out with Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS installed from a live USB. During the install, I selected the option to upgrade automatically from the repositories. This new latop have the following kernel :
Linux 5.13.0-27-generic #29~20.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jan 14 00:32:30 UTC 2022 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Both of the above laptops have :
$ cat /etc/lsb-release DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu DISTRIB_RELEASE=20.04 DISTRIB_CODENAME=focal DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS"
Both also have livepatch enabled.
The question is: What am I missing that as to why does laptop A ( in item  ) never upgrades the kernel to 5.13.x like what laptop B have when laptop B is freshly installed ?
I literally type:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
... everyday on laptop A. Although it upgrades to the latest 5.4.x kernel ... never upgrades to 5.13.x kernel.
