I am using elementaryOS Loki. I have installed 4.8 from Ubuntu repository. But I am still getting 4.4 updates. I don't need 4.4 any more since my computer is working just fine on 4.8. How can make 4.4 from appearing in update list.
P.S: I know about package blacklist by apt, but I was hoping for different solution.

    I guess you have still a 4.4 kernel installed. What is the output of dpkg -l |grep linux-image (in a terminal window)?

You can remove all Linux 4.4 kernels via:

sudo apt remove --purge linux-image-4.4.*

However you might want to keep always at least two kernel versions (the running one and a backup in case an upgrade goes wrong).

  • I have removed 4.4. Your code needs an edit, 4.4.* must be between single qoutes Mar 29 '17 at 12:41
