For Ubuntu and Debian users, a new kernel can be set by index like this: You can also choose a temporary boot option. You can use either the index number of the entry title to specify a boot option.
For Ubuntu and Debian users, a new kernel can be set by index like this: Your Droplet should now boot into the kernel you selected.
Updating the kernel on your Digital Ocean Droplet is a straight forward process that differs slightly based on the Droplet's operating system.
In this guide, we'll walk you through the process of updating your kernels for Digital Ocean Droplets.
Changes in Digital Ocean's backend infrastructure have lead to a more modern process that allows users to manage kernels the Droplet.
Before upgrading your kernel, you should check the version of the kernel that you are currently using.Here are the distributions broken down by boot loader: The appropriate procedure will depend on whether your image uses native internal kernels, or whether you are leveraging the Grub Loader kernel from within the Digital Ocean control panel.If your Droplet uses internal kernels natively, there is quite a bit of flexibility in selecting new kernels.This allows Droplets with the legacy management system to boot into internally installed kernels.The easiest way to find out whether your Droplet natively uses internal kernels or whether it must leverage the Grub Loader kernel is to check in the Digital Ocean control panel.
