My ubuntu system now says;
Your current Hardware Enablement Stack (HWE) is going out of support on 07. aug. 2014. After this date security updates for critical parts (kernel and graphics stack) of your system will no longer be available.
and suggests to fix it by doing:
sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-trusty linux-image-generic-lts-trusty
However, on this website: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack
they state the following:
Those running virtual or cloud images should not need these newer enablement stacks and are thus recommended to remain on the original Precise stack
and I do run on a VM. So I'm a little confused. Should I update the HWE with apt-get or not? It seems to me that I really should, as it seems I might miss important security updates if I don't...but the website also seems to state that I don't need to do so if I run virtual?
