“Now, if you did update the kernel already but don't really NEED one – remember that in Linux you can easily go back to the previously used kernel. You can list all installed kernels using awk -F\' /^menuentry/{print\$2} /etc/grub2.cfg command, and then update saved_entry value of /boot/grub2/grubenv file with the kernel you want to load by default. The easiest way to do this is by using grub2-set-default command with the number that is based on the kernel position on the list obtained with awk command (note that the count starts from 0).” - Gostev @ Veeam
