Ubuntu Freeing Up Space on the Root File System

    /boot at 100%? Try the following to claw back some space:

    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt autoremove –purge
    sudo apt-get autoremove –purge
    sudo purge-old-kernels
    sudo apt autoremove
    sudo apt-get purge linux-image-4.4.0-67
    sudo rm linux-headers-*

    And/Or:

    sudo uname -r
    sudo dpkg –list ‘linux-image*’
    sudo apt-get remove linux-image-VERSION
    * Replace VERSION with the version of the kernel you want to remove. So not your current one.. : )
    sudo apt-get autoremove
    sudo update-grub
