I have updated to the latest Kali Linux 2019.1 Release but my kernel is still stuck on 4.18.0-kali3-amd64
grep VERSION /etc/os-release VERSION="2019.1" VERSION_ID="2019.1"
How do I update to the 4.19.0-kali1-amd64 boot image?
To upgrade and pull in new kernel versions, you need to use either
apt-get upgrade --with-new-pkgs
If you use
apt-get upgrade, it won’t install new kernel versions, only kernel upgrades (with the exact same package name).
