I am using a -rt-amd64 kernel (for audio-related needs), so the kernel package
which I am interested to should be: linux-image-4.19.0-8-rt-amd64

I haven't installed it yet because the system is stable and I would like to
avoid problems because I'm using it for remote working. I will update the
kernel during next ween-end...

If you mean I will need to update it manually, I will do it...
