For 64-bit (single command):
Linux terminal: ~$cd /tmp && wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.18.4-vivid/linux-headers-3.18.4-031804-generic_3.18.4-031804.201501271243_amd64.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.18.4-vivid/linux-headers-3.18.4-031804_3.18.4-031804.201501271243_all.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.18.4-vivid/linux-image-3.18.4-031804-generic_3.18.4-031804.201501271243_amd64.deb && sudo dpkg -i *.deb[/code]
2. Update GRUB (GRUB need to upgrade the Linux system where it is installed, if you have more than one)
Linux terminal: ~$sudo update-grub[/code]

Note If you have a boot loader installed BURG, and it should be updated:
Linux terminal: ~$sudo update-burg[/code]
3. At the end of the installation, close all applications and restart the computer the following command:
Linux terminal: ~$sudo reboot[/code]
Once logged in, check the version of the current kernel with the command:
Linux terminal: ~$uname -r[/code]
If you decide to delete the kernel 3.18.4,
1. When the computer bootsthe GRUB menu, select your old kernelAfter booting the system, remove the new kernel by command below

3. And again update GRUB or BURG
To return to the previous kernel when booting Grub select Previous Linux versions
Good Luck!!!
