I see 2.6.32-042stab072.10 for mine (that was released in Jan 2013). Not sure why yours is 3 years old. Different centers have different templates or maybe the OS is different? Also I have Ubuntu 12.04 running on mine.

Is there a way to upgrade 12.04 to 13.04? I don't mind using my bandwidth.

The actual kernel in your OS 12.04 - ships with kernel 3.2
. Now, that release date on 2.6 is misleading, that's the patched date. Your kernel, the 2.6.32 kernel shipped in 9.10 & 10.04 LTS (2010) - hence patching dates, is what you're seeing. You can request an update, look at Kevins post, you qualify

Issues like the default firewall UFW, and other issues are because the kernel libs don't support those features, that's why they don't work on a straight install. i.e. they're built on the newer code.

scroll down you will notice in the wiki link 1) [wikipedia.org] and main line here [ubuntu.com]

I'm no expert, but I think this is what you're asking - on your upgrade, in get-apt, if you do distro option, or just use webmin, it will you upgrade to next release. Now sure if you can jump two releases, or a fresh install on a VPS
