No. The -n in the package name is the ABI version and the ABI has not 
changed for this update. The updates you are seeing are just minor tweaks 
in the packaging of the kernel.

No, why?
If you don't want to upgrade your kernel at that time (probably because 
you don't want to reboot), just answer no and put the package on hold.

If you'd use a frontend like aptitude, you'd have a much better overview 
of what will get installed and holding a package would be very simple.
