Since the kernel is upgraded, too, you have to reboot your machine.

+NOTE: The newer kernel version in Nexon enables KMS (Kernel
+Mode-Setting) for more cards, including NVidia cards via the nouveau
+drivers. If the boot just hangs after the reboot, a good idea is to try
+booting using the `nomodeset` kernel parameter.
