You can do one of two things to get the beowulf kernel - either install
linux-image-amd64, which is a metapackage that will always install the
latest available kernel, or you can install the kernel by the full package
name, currently linux-image-4.19.0-8-amd64.

If you do the latter, stay alert to when -9 comes out. You won't get it

Take the downgrade. It's not really a downgrade; it's an upgrade to a
lower-numbered version. (We no longer need to fork upower.)

That's all I've got. Hope it helps.
