intel-microcode error
I get this error since updating my Debian video server to Jessie. Is this anything to be concerned about? How can I get rid of it?

E: intel-microcode: unsupported kernel version!

# apt-get remove intel-microcode

That worked, but I thought it was needed???

It's not *needed* -- it's just an update for the code running the CPU.

My Debian sid system has this configuration file:

# /etc/modprobe.d/intel-microcode-blacklist.conf
# The microcode module attempts to apply a microcode update when
# it autoloads.  This is not always safe, so we block it by default.
blacklist microcode

So the updates aren't applied anyway.
