Ubuntu My grub doesn't update kernel

2012-11-29  Source: Original Site  Category:Ubuntu  Views:0 


I have ubuntu since version 7.1.
Last year I have installed KGrub (it might be important, because I suspect that is because of this program that my grub doesn't update).

I have upgraded last week to Ubuntu 9.10 and I'm having some problems with the grub. It maintains the version 2.6.28-15.
How can I force my grub to update to the last version of the kernel available?

this are all the kernels available in my grub:
title Ubuntu 9.04, kernel 2.6.28-15-generic
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.28-15-generic root=UUID=e99b5fc7-69c4-442a-8a1e-3461bac91c7a ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.28-15-generic

title Ubuntu 9.04, kernel 2.6.28-15-generic (recovery mode)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.28-15-generic root=UUID=e99b5fc7-69c4-442a-8a1e-3461bac91c7a ro single
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.28-15-generic
