Hey Fritz,

You could search for the available kernels to see which ones are 
available, and which ones are installed.

You can also look in the /var/log/dpkg.log something like:

grep "upgrade " /var/log/dpkg.log

That might give you a starting point.

As for the disappearance of firefox, I think snap/flatpak packages don't 
always show up after install, there may be a way to force it to update 
the menus but I don't really like to use either of those unless I 
*really* have to, so I don't know off the top of my head/
