Ubuntu 21.04 is still in development and not ready yet.

Current status of Ubuntu 21.04 is to have kernel version 5.11.0-13.14 which is a version that has been specifically been modified for Ubuntu and which is based on a 5.11.* mainstream kernel version (sorry, I do not know exactly which one).

As far as I can see from Bug #1923069 there currently is work done to bring a modified version of the 5.11.12 mainline kernel into Ubuntu 21.04 before its publication.

But did you know before with ubuntu 20.10 or later have be issue with
Ubuntu Kernel Update Utility?

I know is works without any issue on Linux mint 20.1 but i know with 20.10 its be some issue its can not be installed, but i an be fixed, i upgrade to 21.04 so i think its may no be fixed if not 21.04 get to much issue.

But did you know difference with Ubuntu 21.04 and 20.10? because if you have new computer is bigger chance that its get issue but i think hardware support with kernel and new features with lastest version.

But you can upgrade kernel on old distribution too, but not sure if charge graphics card its will pass boot or get no screen found or poor images or xorg issue?

I am sorry, I cannot understand your comment.

I do not know a "Ubuntu Kernel Update Utility". There is no official package with such name.

Which Nvidia chip are you using?

Ubuntu Kernel Update Utility is an additional software that is not provided by Ubuntu, but by a private person. If you have problems with that software, please contact that person directly. This is not the right place to ask.

If you decide to use the kernel packages not from the standard Ubuntu repositories, but kernel versions from elsewhere, then this is your own responsibility and you have to cope with problems yourself.Foreign software is out of scope for the Ubuntu answers area.

Can you help with this problem?
