As I have already explained, that will *not* make 'apt-get upgrade'
install the newer kernel package automatically. RTFM, please:

     upgrade is used to install the newest versions of all packages
     currently installed on the system from the sources enumerated in
     /etc/apt/sources.list.  Packages currently installed with new
     versions available are retrieved and upgraded; UNDER NO
     CIRCUMSTANCES are currently installed packages removed, or
     PACKAGES NOT ALREADY INSTALLED retrieved and installed. ...

My emphasis. Which part of "under no circumstances" does one of us not
