Sure, go for it. If you need the features in the newer kernel then by all means install it

The link is just an explanation of sudo vs gksudo. I don't think a later kernel will resolve that issue

There is a handy tool here:

Here is a video explaining it:

If you look at you can see that there is the 4.10.0-38.42 version of the kernel in the xenial-proposed repository. If you need the -38 version urgently, then you should add the xenial-proposed source to your list of repositories. Or you can wait until it is published, and then a package upgrade should install it anyhow.

There is also available which offers the 4.11.0 (soon 4.13.0) version of the kernel. Depending on your needs also this package might be an option for you.
