In order to gain the improvements found in a more recent kernel, you can always search for the right repository or even attempt an old-fashion kernel compile. That's right, beyond the standard GUI package manager (such as Ubuntu or GNOME Software), there's a graphical tool that serves the singular purpose of upgrading the Linux kernel.
