Ubuntu 16.04 - Upgrade Kernel

Ubuntu 16.04.3 came out recently, and if you're still running the 4.4 or 4.8 kernels and want to upgrade to 4.10 then run the following command:

Desktop

sudo apt-get install --install-recommends \
linux-generic-hwe-16.04 xserver-xorg-hwe-16.04 -y

Server

sudo apt-get install --install-recommends \
linux-generic-hwe-16.04 -y

Extra

After having done this, you may wish to reboot into your new kernel before then removing the old kernels.
