    Update/Upgrade

    Hello

    After running "sudo apt-get update" where there is absolutely no problem, I run the command that usually follows "sudo apt-get upgrade" and I encounter the following error:

    Code:
    Do you want to continue [Y/n]? y

    What shall I do to fix this?

    "No space left on device" means you're out of hard disk space. See if you can resize your partition to something larger.

    Problem solved, I had to delete old linux kernel images lying in /boot.

    You can bag the thread.
