    Thanks for this great tutorial.

    I updated the kernel easily, but Kubuntu 16.04 is telling me to download the 4.4.xx kernel, how to stop that?

      Hi Muaad,
      I did not test this in Kubuntu, but in theory it should work. Can you post a screenshot of this message and indicate the step where it appears?

      Thanks for coming back to me, as it turns out I had my packages mixed up, a bit of house keeping and everything went back to normal!
