I just came across the recently closed thread regarding incorrect Kernel info being displayed in MintUpdate. I'm having similar issues since upgrading to MintUpdate 5.3.2.3.

However, NOT just low-latency Kernels...

I run Linux Mint 18.3 xfce 64-bit and use Ukuu to installl the latest Linux Kernels on my system.

Currently running 4.16.8 generic

"uname -r" shows: 4.16.8-041608-generic.

Ukuu also shows that 4.16.8 is currently running, however the View>Linux kernels menu in MintUpdate shows that no kernels are currently installed (under the various 4.x sub-headings). Underneath the "Kernels" window-title, its displays the text: "Kernel 3.13.0-37-generic currently loaded"

Clearly something's not right. Any additional information required (I'm somewhat of a newbie, so forgive me)?

Cheers,

Mike.

how did you install the 4.16? Because right now there is only 4.15 in the bionic repo. Also the fix for the mintUpdate is shipped with LM 19 and mintUpdate 5.4

Issue is also present in mintupdate 5.4.0. I think it's because the linux-image package for mainline kernels is named linux-image-unsigned-$version$-generic and mintupdate is looking for the format linux-image-$version$-generic

Does need fixing to enable users who do decide to experiment with mainline to easily uninstall.

From a quick test, 4.17.5 is not displayed in mintupdate 5.4.0

Support for listing installed mainline kernels was first added in mintupdate 5.4.2 for LM19.x (82baf86).
