    alifakoor; Hello;

    The package manager tells you what is going on and a possible likely solution:
    cannot copy extracted data for './boot/' to '/boot/': failed to write (No space left on device)
    No apport report written because the error message indicates a disk full error
    Show us what that " disk full" is all about, post back the output of terminal commands:
    df -h
    df -i
    Try what the package manager suggests:
    sudo apt autoremove
    Be aware IF apt has no operating head room the command 'autoremove' will fail. We then drop down to lower levels to cope .

    ain't nothing but a thing
    THE current(cy) in Documentation:

    Happy ubuntu'n !
