    Talking Apt no longer works...

    Hi,
    Every time I run apt or dpkg in any guise I get the following end result.

    install@ULS022C00:~$ sudo apt-get install -f

    Could someone please advise me how to resolve this problem?
    I think it may be related to this message which I have just started getting...

    => /boot is using 96.5% of 227MB
    I am running Ubuntu 12.10 (GNU/Linux 3.5.0-23-generic x86_64) on an old headless WHS from Acer (H-340) which has an internal ram disk (/dev/sde1) which I setup as /boot during install as the boot image was small enough.

    I think I need to move boot back onto the main hard disk and waste the ram disk. So even if that is not the problem, could someone advise me how to move boot?

    Appreciate any support.
    Kind reagrds,
