Perhaps try another package manager.  Perhaps it's a Synaptic quirk.  I use 
aptitude and have never had any problem installing extra kernels.  I have to 
uninstall some periodically because they pile up with upgrades!

You talk of Synaptic trying to uninstall multiple kernels, so multiple kernels 
must be there in the first place, so you must have managed to install them.

As you see, I have both 3.2, and 3.16 from backports.  Here is my list again 
on this box:
