    12.04LTS upgrading - disk full - FATAL errors on upgrade

    This is on a virtual server that I don't have physical access to.
    I freed up some space but still getting the following errors:

    #apt-get upgrade
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    2 not fully installed or removed.
    After this operation, 0 B of additional disk space will be used.

    I am new to the kernal installing world...

    So far I have done:
    # update-initramfs -u

    # apt-get clean && sudo apt-get autoremove

    # dpkg --configure -a


    I tried the following from this forum:
    #ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/librtmp.so.0 librtmp.so.0

    # dpkg -l 'linux-*' | sed '/^ii/!d;/'"$(uname -r | sed "s/\(.*\)-\([^0-9]\+\)/\1/")"'/d;s/^[^ ]* [^ ]* \([^ ]*\).*/\1/;/[0-9]/!d' | xargs sudo apt-get -y purge


    Thanks a lot

    That doesn't look like a normal "disk full" error.
    Perhaps you did free enough space, but have a different error now.
    One solution to this particular error is at http://askubuntu.com/questions/30295...-with-return-1

    Looks like you are running a not-stock-Ubuntu 2.6 kernel, but it's not listed among your kernel packages.
    Did you install it yourself? (not a package?)
    When time comes to remove it, will you be able to?

    Re: 12.04LTS upgrading - disk full - FATAL errors on upgrade

    Unfortunately the OS was setup by the hosting provider..
    That did allow me to update-initramfs.. I guess I'll ask them for the custom kernal, if it is custom, I was hoping I could get that particular one..
    Thanks a lot
