I am on Ubuntu 12.04 64bit. As of recently I started getting message that I need to upgrade the system in order to install new kernel. Look at the image.
However, during this upgrade they will remove some of tools which I do not want to be removed.
The same thing happened a few months ago and I upgraded to install kernel and as of then some Java apps stopped working, especially those who were depended on 32bit libraries I forcibly installed.
How to stop this happening? Why are they forcing me to upgrade when 12.04 was supposed to be LTS?
