24 hours ago, Linux kernel 4.4.0-65 appeared as an update on Ubuntu 16.04 update servers. I did not do the update at that time because I was too busy to restart the system because of the update. I attempted to do the update 12 hours ago though and although all other updates appeared and installed properly, the kernel update had vanished.

Kernel 4.4.0-65 update is still nowhere to be found at this time. I have changed update servers just to ensure that this was not a local server issue but the results were the same.

Does anyone know what has happened?

Thank you!

    @George The question is not how to install 4.4.0-65 but why it was available yesterday (not through xenial-proposed) and is no longer there today (except in xenial-proposed). – Byte Commander Mar 3 '17 at 16:59
  • @ByteCommander Yes I know wasn't trying to answer that just showing where the OP could get it... – George Udosen Mar 3 '17 at 17:00
  • It was definitely in updates for a short time. One of my xenial machines got the update, the other one did not. – Organic Marble Mar 3 '17 at 17:29

After some search I found out that it was pulled back actually because of critical errors like this one here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1669611

Thank you all though! :)
