    It's not saying there is no free space left at all on your drive, it's saying there is no free space on your /boot partition.
    Just to check can you post the output of...
    Code:
    df -h

    Your tiny /boot partition is full. Consider resizing it to one GB or so.

    It's going to be tricky to resize as you are using LVM. You will first need to shrink your root logical volume, and then your volume group before you can resize the LVM partition.

    For more info on resizing LVM with gparted have a look at this...

    For a quick fix you can uninstall some of your old kernels, this will give you some free space on /boot.
