    Software Updater: Not enough free disk space on disk '/boot'

    I am trying to update, not upgrade
    I click on Software Updater
    it check for Updates
    I click Install Now
    I get the following~



    my Rubbish Bin is empty and I have tried
    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean
    but it didn't fix anything and I'm still getting this same messages
    I have also tried Restart... but I'm not sure if Restart... is different to Shut Down... so maybe I will try Shut Down... instead

    Seems like your root directory is full.

    Open the terminal and type

    Code:
    df -h
    and let's see the output.

    Also what was the terminal output when you ran

    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean
    P.S. Is this a WUBI install by any chance?

    You could try and install Bleachbit and run the admin version to remove unecessary temp files and such from your root and home...

    what is WUBI? I clean-installed this one from one of the previous three versions of Ubuntu, I cannot remember which one but it didn't have Unity so it was the one just before Unity was implemented, here this is a snapshot of my current system.

    is Bleachbit easy to use?

    Re: Software Updater: Not enough free disk space on disk '/boot'

    rc means remaining configuration. You can savely purge them:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge linux-image-3.5.0-17-generic
    etc.

    Re: Software Updater: Not enough free disk space on disk '/boot'

    is it safe to remove linux-image and linux-image-3.0 and linux-image-generic?
