When I was configuring grub, I found out that I have multiple linux image, like this,

configure grub

I checked with uname -r command, it showed 4.15.0-62-generic

And then i checked on my /boot directory with ls -l, and the result is,

/boot directory

My questions are,

  1. Do I have multiple linux (elementary OS) ?.
  2. And if so, How to remove the duplicate ?.
  3. Why when i checked with uname -r it's not showing the latest version (...-62) instead of (...-64)

  1. No, you don't. (You have as many Linux operating systems, as you have system root directories, which are usually marked with a forward slash, /.) The items in the list are not different operating systems, but different Linux kernel version images, available to your OS.

  2. On how to remove older kernel versions, refer to this post.

  3. For some reason, newer kernel version hasn't been properly installed. (Despite newer kernel (.64) being available, your system still uses older version (.62). Try:

    sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade && sudo apt autoremove
