Do you have a separate partition for boot, mounted at /boot? If so, it may be full (or almost full). Run
df -h from the terminal. If said partition exists, and has little room, then you should delete old kernels using Synaptic (be careful to not delete the kernel you are presently using) to free up some space, and then try updating again.
