Because linux-image-4.19.0-4-amd64 and linux-image-4.19.0-5-amd64 are
two different packages, not two versions of a package. Install
linux-image-amd64 package which depends on newest kernel version and it
will pull linux-image-4.19.0-5-amd64.
Thank you, Marko.
That was the solution. The kernel used to update just like any other package. Perhaps I somehow deleted linux-image-amd64 while removing an old kernel recently.
Appears to be fixed now.
