The default setup/configuration of up2date is to 'skip' the kernel 
package. Probably to prevent an unattended installation/upgrade of 
your current running kernel.

To install the updated kernel do as the others in the thread have said 

I prefer the commandline up2date over any GUI..

up2date -i kernel --force   will overide the 'skip' and install the 
kernel (Leaving the original still available to boot from of course)
