Update Linux Kernel on Mint or Ubuntu

for upgrade you need three packages, depending on you architecture:

linux-headers ... ... ... amd64.deb
linux-headers ... ... ... all.deb
linux-image   ... ... ... amd64.deb

if you use Ubuntu based Linux distro, you can pick one of these: 

for example:

$ sudo update-grub

If for some reason you want to downgrade the kernel, it loads the newest kernel by default, so just uninstall new one (three packages that I mentioned) and it will load second on the list after reboot. Make sure you have at least one kernel installed! :)
