    The solution is called checking the simplest method possible. Did you verify that grub calls the proper kernel?

    Hi,

    Just after the follow of that instruction I did additional things.
    I installed linux-image, linux-header and linux-src disparately and after reboot I did command grub-update, and after that apt-get update and upgrade again, but firstly I switched off by hash sign the repository pointed to ubuntu in apt config file. After that I have had the proper kernel and all upgrade.
