Upgrade packages have been kept back
I'm starting (literally never done this before) with Linode and just got a server with Ubuntu 19.10 installed. I'm going through Getting Started with Linode instructions and got stuck on Install Software Updates part.
When I run
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade I get this output:
The following packages have been kept back:
linux-generic linux-headers-generic linux-image-generic
Does anyone know what this means and what to do here?
When a package is "kept back" by apt-get that means updating the package would require the installation of a new package, so the update was skipped. You can update the packages by reinstalling them:
apt-get install linux-generic linux-headers-generic linux-image-generic
