for boot up. How to correct it?

I'm not quite sure that the kernel get upgrade with apt-get dist-upgrade, nevertheless you can chek if a new kernel is installed in the following way:
# ls -l /boot
you shoud have a vmlinuz the version of the kernel that you are looking for, if not go to www.kernel.org and download the kernel that you want and compile it.
I hope this helps.
