    Hello,

    Yes you will have to do it each time a new kernel is released,

    And doing kernel upgrade automatic is foolish.

    Also note that just installing it is not enough, you need to set it to use that kernel on boot and then also reboot.

    one of the main reason behind kernel update is system or server security.
