      "Upgrade linux-image?"
      Is harmless, because coLinux does not use this file, that exist in directory /boot.

      But generally, an upgrade have many risk. Please make a backup of your coLinux Image file under Windows, before you risk this step.

      After the upgrade, you needs to "tune" somethings on the scripts again, see
