    Did a upgrade of the kernel.

    From 11.10 to 12.04 and now when trying to update the system I get a message that the boot folder is full. and the command "sudo apt-get clean" aint working.
    So what to do,Is there a way of manualy cleaning the folder?

    Probably need to remove some old kernels. Which one's ?

    Code:
    ls -lah /boot

    Do you have a separate /boot partition, and if so why do you bother? It generally causes more problems than it solves.

    The command
    Code:
    grep menuentry /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    will show you exactly what kernels are listed in your grub menu, and how many kernels you have. You can then remove the unwanted ones (all except the last two) with software-centre, synaptic or apt-get remove
