  linux-generic package missing, kernels not updating

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Today I realized that although I've been performing 'apt-get update'
  and 'apt-get dist-upgrade' on this machine, the kernel package had not
  updated since  3.13.0-39

  Investigation revealed that the linux-generic package was not
  installed, although I have not explicitly uninstalled the package.

  I reinstalled linux-generic, and the dependencies caused new kernel
  packages to be installed, and it appears that I'm back to normal.
