 <code>sudo apt update</code> <code>sudo apt update</code>

 +Now that Debian Backports is enabled on the system, you need to locate Linux kernel version 5.3 in the software repositories. To do this, use the apt search command and search for the package linux-image.
 +
 +Note: if you need to install custom kernel modules, you must also search for and install the package linux-headers.
 +
 +<code>apt search linux-image</code>
 +
 +After running the command above, you should see a print-out in the terminal outlining various versions of the Linux kernel available for Debian 10 Stable.
 +
 +Alternatively, if this print-out is too tricky to sort through, run apt search with the grep command, and filter “buster-backports.”
 +
 +Inside of the search results, two variations of Linux Kernel 5.3 are present. These variations are:
 +
 +linux-image-5.3.0-0.bpo.2-amd64
 +
 +linux-image-5.3.0-0.bpo.2-cloud-amd64
 +
 +Using the apt command in the terminal, load up Linux Kernel 5.3 on your Debian 10 Stable desktop.
 +
 +<code>sudo apt install linux-image-5.3.0-0.bpo.2-amd64</code>
 +
 +Additionally, be sure to install the 5.3 Linux Kernel headers, if you rely on modules.
 +
 +<code>sudo apt install linux-headers-5.3.0-0.bpo.2-amd64</code>
