Good Day!

Im having a difficulties in upgrading this server's kernel. Since I am new to this server management. Anyone who have idea to upgrade this type of server ?

Linux vps180 2.6.32-37-pve #1 SMP Wed Mar 18 08:19:56 CET 2015 i686.

I try also to use apt-get dist-upgrade but here are the results.

Reading package lists... Done

Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done

Calculating upgrade... Done

0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.\

Any help will much really appreciated.

  • Is apt-get dist-upgrade the only thing you tried? – Ryan Babchishin Jul 19 '16 at 3:12
  • Which version of debian is this? – MadHatter Jul 19 '16 at 5:16

You need to update the apt repository info first

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

That should do a full distribution update on Debian based systems and you'll have the latest kernel for that release.


If that doesn't seem to work, things in /etc/apt could be broken - such as missing or misconfigured repositories.

See /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.list.d. Read man sources.list and google sources.list examples for your distribution.
