This question already has an answer here:

I am on Kubuntu 17.04. And I wonder - how can I check whether I am on the latest kernel?

I type this in my terminal:

$ uname -r

So is it the latest kernel? If not, how can I update it to the latest one?

    You can apt-cache policy linux-generic to see what version is installed, and what version is available. Updates are through sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get dist-upgrade – Charles Green May 28 '17 at 4:33

You can install Ukuu (Ubuntu Kernel Update Utility). Check the latest kernel and install.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:teejee2008/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ukuu
