Update Question

In updating Zorin 17 Pro this morning, I was surprised to see the apt list include incidences of both Ubuntu 20.04 and 22.04 as well as kernals 5.15 and 6.5.

Just curious, if anyone cares to offer any insights, as to why the previous version of Ubuntu and old kernal are still being updated. Is this normal?

I do not know the answer off-hand, but suspect it is to provide support for previous editions of kernels and drivers to better handle a more broad range of machines.

I switched this thread to Feedback forum.

After I posted this question, I got to wondering if it has anything to do with the fact I used the Upgrader from Zorin 16 Pro to Zorin 17 Pro.

Everything seems to be working fine. Thanks for your insights Aravisian. Your thoughts make sense to me.
