A couple of months ago I started following tutorials about updating to the latest stable version of the Linux kernel for Ubuntu -which is currently 4.0.9. The updates where flawless and I noticed my system is working better and running a bit faster. Yet everytime I want to update my other software, I get old packages of the official 15.04 Ubuntu kernel.
I already followed this tutorial How to skip kernel update? and worked well in hidding some of the kernel update packages, but I still get linux-headers-generic and linux-tools-generic on my list of updates (when running apt-get dist-upgrade).
My /etc/apt/preferences looks like this:
Package: linux-generic linux-headers-generic linux-image-generic linux-restricted-modules-generic linux-tools-generic Pin: version 4.0.9 Pin-Priority: 1001
Thanks in advance for your help!
