no kernel updates (solved)
#1
I had a kernel problem in Ubuntu 16.04. The 4.4.0-143 kernel prevented Virtual Box from booting guest machines. I rebooted with the 4.4.0-142 kernel and all worked as before.

Then I removed the 4.4.0-143 this way:

sudo apt-get purge linux-image-4.4.0-143-generic

and

sudo apt-get purge linux-headers-4.4.0-64-generic

A new kernel was in the updates for today. My wife's machine running 16.04 got it. My machine did not.

How do I get my machine to begin updating the kernel again?

UPDATE! I found the kernal update in Synaptic. I updated to ver. 4.4.0.145. The Virtual Box problem came with it. I can't open guest machines with Virtual Box 6.0.4 when booted with the .145 kernel. It's back to 4.4.0.142.
