I cannot install some security updates to Ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn) 64bit, which are kernel updates.

The Kernel Updates

Those are the updates.

Error Message

I cannot install them. In settings, I have everything ticked. Also, sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade does not install them, everything else, including other security updates. Help would be very much appreciated.

Thank you for your time and answers.
