Depending on your installation -- if you're still using the same kernel you
installed Debian with, then the kernel isn't known to dpkg at all and an apt-get
update won't change it.

If you're using a kernel-package- package then YMMV, I'd be inclined to use grub
and check out /etc/kernel-pkg.conf (Or was it kernel-somethingelse.conf) so that
 kernel packages run update-grub when they're installed.

Otherwise, you're building your own kernels with make-kpkg and you're using your
own version numbers; the package name won't match any in the package database
and so won't get upgraded automatically.
