Never required, if you keep your installation up to date.

I see 4.3 is out. on my notebook install installation is up to date, full system upgrade done, apt get finds no more packages to upgrade.
uname -mrs gives me kernel as : Linux 4.4.0-1 - amd64 x86_64 NOT 4.5.1
cat /etc/*-release gives me:   ID Sparky, Release = 4, Codename=Tyche

Am I doing something wrong? ran system upgrade applet, ran apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade ....

Make sure you have 'linux-image-amd64' meta package installed.
If so, you will always get a kernel update as default.

Everything is fine, you have Linux kernel 4.5 installed.
Refresh grub list:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-gruband reboot your machine, starting the system with the 4.5 kernel.

You have to reboot your machine and choose Linux kernel 4.5 if it doesn't launch the upper one from grub list.

OK. I think we may have a problem, I am triple booting this notebook: windows , sparky KDE and LXLE (ubuntu based), Windows on one  HDD, both linuxes on other (dual hdd notebook by dell). Will have to investigate some more, Multiboot by Easy BCD
Just rebooted:
pablo@sparkynetb:~$ uname -mrs
Linux 4.4.0-1-amd64 x86_64
pablo@sparkynetb:~$

If you installed LXLE after Sparky, run LXLE and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub
Otherwise, if you are on Sparky now, you can run Synaptic, search 'grub' package, mark all 4 installed grub packages to re-install, then reinstall them.

Both operations will update/refresh grub correctly.
