After upgrading kernel 4.19 to 5.2 . uname -a or system monitor doesn’t show 5.2 kernel . it shows old kernel (4.19).
Another Error is after restarting Parrot login page not coming .
I reinstall the Os several times but after upgrading same problem occurs…

Please Sir help me…

how do you upgrade? with apt upgrade?

sudo parrot-upgrade

But uname -a & sytem-monitor shows old kernel…

I am sorry sir. may be here i don’t find any help. :cry:

maybe this solve your problem

check what version of kernel do you have in grub by pressing E, it is probably old, try doing

sudo update-grub2

So, we don’t do apt-get update, apt-get dist-upgrade like in kali distro? Just sudo parrot-upgrade.

We suggest parrot-upgrade because it is safer to suggest this one command to all Parrot users. It usually helps prevent users from running into problems in the long run. Of course you are free to upgrade/update however you like (if you really know what you are doing), but we strongly suggest using parrot-upgrade.

This also helps to prevent newer users from receiving/reading possible bad advice :slight_smile:

Here is what the parrot-upgrade command does:

apt update || echo failed to update index lists
dpkg --configure -a || echo failed to fix interrupted upgrades
apt --fix-broken --fix-missing install || echo failed to fix conflicts
apt -y --allow-downgrades --fix-broken --fix-missing dist-upgrade
