How To Upgrade and old kernel remove manjaro i3 question

Hlw I have Install manjaro i3. my linux kernel version is 5.7.11-3-MANJARO but latest version is 5.9.11-3-MANJARO. So how i update kernel lastest stable version and remove old version.

Kernel update – to revision version – happens as with any other package.
Kernel upgrade – to major/minor version – is manual by default AFAIK. Alternatively, you can install the linux-latest (or linux-lts) so it also upgrades with package updates.

Hoy can use sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux59 && sudo Pacman -S linux59-headers
This will install kernel 5.9 y his headers, then reboot, check if the system work fine, then remove the 5.7 with sudo mhwd-kernel -r linux57

When you use mhwd-kernel to update - it will update other installed packages relating to the kernel e.g. headers, virtualbox and nvidia modules but you need the system to fully updated to do so.

sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux510

If you want to remove the running kernel - remember to reboot immediately

sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux510 rmc

If you - for various reasons don’t want to do a full update before using mhwd - you must specify all packages on the command line - add in any Nvidia kernel modules if necessary

sudo pacman -Syu linux510

Or if you need headers

sudo pacman -Syu linux510 linux510-headers

Or if you need virtualbox

sudo pacman -Syu linux510 linux510-virtualbox-host-modules

Create any mix you deem necessary for your system

The answers doesn’t cover the remove i3 part from your top header but from the content of you OP it seemed not the topic - but merely kernel related - right?
