"Changes for intel-microcode versions:
Installed version: 3.20210608.0ubuntu0.20.04.1
Available version: 3.20220510.0ubuntu0.20.04.1
Now, is this because I had to install support for i:386 ? So frustrating, because I installed WINE 6 just days before WINE 7 (which does require 32 bit architecture around) was released by their developers, a week at most! So when I update kernels, it asks me for additional x86 SMP kernel updates and such and all of that for nothing, since I did install WINE 7 and I'm thinking that since removing all of the 32 bit architecture could be as long as it was to install it (pretty long process),
I rather not touch it, at least until I install the PCI x4 adapter for the 256gb M.2 SSD for which I will be creating with clonezilla, a clone of the drive Ubuntu MATE is on, it's all by itself, no other partitions to that ultra fast M.2 SSD.
Anyways, is my assumption wrong? I don't know why I would have intel-microcode installed otherwise, I have nothing even in my peripherals that would need this, so I'm guessing this comes when one installs the i386 32 bit architecture, am I right? Can I skip that update? I mean, in Software Updater, it says literally "Processor Microcode firmware for Intel CPUs". Now I guess it installed the previous package at the original install before it figured out what processor I am running or...as I said, the whole 32 bit arch that I missed not having to install by a week
