Is there a way to get the matching Linux kernel headers automatic on a regular kernel update via the Ubuntu packed manager?
Every time I get a new kernel I must do an
aptitude install linux-headers-`uname -r`

Have you installed
linux-headers-386? Those meta-packages keep track of the installed kernel and get updated automagically when a new kernel (and hence a kernel-header) package is available.
See the ubuntu documentation for further information.
This is a bug #693311 of automatic updater. This bug is not solved. I verify that linux-headers-generic is installed (Ubuntu 12.10) but it is not helpful. For more information see: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/693311
