Ubuntu: Software updater reverting to previous kernel version


I have Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and I have updated it to the latest stable Ubuntu kernel:

Linux version 3.17.1-031701-generic (apw@gomeisa) (gcc version 4.6.3 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.6.3-1ubuntu5) ) #201410150735 SMP Wed Oct 15 11:36:31 UTC 2014      

This is the output when I run: cat /proc/version

When I run the software updater, I automatically revert to the 3.13 ..... version of the kernel. Is there any way that I can update software's without reverting to the kernels previous version?

Thank, Rochan



sudo apt-mark hold [linuxkernelpackage]  

This will ignore upgrades/downgrades for that package.

The latest official kernel for 14.04LTS is 3.13, you must have installed the 3.17 kernel using a PPA or from scratch.
