    OK - I can see a lot of kernals - just about 4 or 5 have check marks.

    Some are physically lower on the list than what I believe are the current and next-to-current versions.

    The list is invert-able for version numbers only.

    I can only highlight them one at a time, but there's nothing about removing or getting rid of them in any way.

    Right click on them = nothing pops out.

    There's no drop-down menu either to eliminate them.

    They can be highlighted, but only one at a time.

    Where can I dump them and how?

    THIS IS THE NEXT POST

    OK - there are a few check marks and some - what I believe are: warnings and fixes of some kind.

    I don't want to change the kernal ever again since every thine I do, I lose my WiFi and have to reinstall proprietary drivers every time. Lot's o' work !!!

    OK - I assume that the ONLY kernals that are viable are the ones with check marks - right?

    If so, then I can get rid of them - I found that you have to left click them first - silly me!~

    OK - are those with no marks worrisome? I am only given the option of installing them, and I imagine they can be deleted at that point - but that sounds rather 'wrong'.

    Do I take the checked ones OUT and where do I stop? I don't think there are more than 4 or 5 with check marks, not counting the uppermost version which I believe is the one I am running on right now - right?

    See? This is what I mean ---- Linux gives partial information and information that doesn't get the same yield as when you do follow these instructions.
    That's because it's spelled KERNEL with an E, not an A.

    In any case, search for linux-image, as fred_fish said.

    Heck! I thought you was gonna say that there's an extra "U" in it like I get all the time from Upsidedown Lands 1 & 2.

    OK - KERNEL.... I was gonna go for "Colonel" but that'd be stretching it a bit for a joke.

    Now your "Leftenant" v our "Lieutenant" is bad enuff!



    I'm still at a loss as to which ones gotta die and which ones live.
    ...... Are the numbers progressive and can I kill the older ones up to the last two or so - or go all the way up to the one that's reported as running?

    If you are happy with the current version (in your case 4.4.0-121-generic #145 as shown by uname) you can uninstall all the others.

    I would strongly advise however, that you leave at least the next older version also installed, just in case you run into trouble with the latest version, or for some reason the latest version becomes unbootable for no good reason.
    On this computer, I've got 4.15.0-45.48 and 4.15.0-44.47 both installed as you can see.

    I also prefer to search synaptic for major kernel version number, and uninstall not just the linux-image but also the headers, modules etc for that version at the same time:

    The blue tick in this case represents an officially supported Ubuntu package, while the green square indicates that the package is installed. Depending on what DE and theme you have, this may look a little different for you.


    However, all this manual removal is typically unnecessary, and you should actually be able to automate the removal of older kernels and associated files by running the "apt-get autoremove" command in your terminal anyway.
    That should leave all but the 2 or 3 most recent ones installed, and will also uninstall other things that aren't actually being used, like leftover shared libraries for programs that no longer need them, or of which have already uninstalled.

    I went and used the search engine in the Synaptic Package for 'kernal' and got this ------->

    Click the "Installed Version" column header and it should sort the installed packages to the top.

    Just make sure you've scrolled all the way to the top, too.

    I cannot get a screenshot of the card that's showing --- but it says that 'The apt cache is corrupted and to NOT update or download anything until that is repaired' - or words to that effect.

    It could break my operating system if not fixed.
    Switch to a different Linux Mint repository to f solve this situation
    .... which I have done now 5 times and still no fix.
