Linux not picking up new kernel


Sometimes you would see a problem where your new kernel has been installed and is correctly stored at /boot folder. But on boot it would not appear in the grub menu and would not be automatically picked up on reboot.

That’s it!

Then just reboot your server/PC and it would automatically pickup the newest kernel.
