View Full Version : [ubuntu] Linux Kernel Updating Problem

January 5th, 2009, 07:15 AM
I just recently installed Ubuntu 8.10 (this is my first experience with Linux) and was trying to install the update of the new Linux kernal and it keeps giving me the same error:

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/linux-image-2.6.27-7-generic_2.6.27-7.16_i386.deb: unable to make backup link of `./boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27-7-generic' before installing new version

What should I do?

Have you ran out of space? You can check from a terminal using

df -h
