I ran the following a week ago to upgrade from 16.04.1 to 16.04.2 with HWE:
sudo apt install --install-recommends xserver-xorg-hwe-16.04
It installed a 4.8 kernel which I'm running now. Just now, I ran the following:
sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade
This installed the
4.4.0-62-generic kernel and made that the kernel that will be booted into, I think, because it's pointed to by
/vmlinuz. How do I stop future updates of the 4.4 kernel series and set the kernel that will be booted into next time back to the 4.8 kernel series?
