/boot partition is full, but it has old linux kernels and the current one.
apt-get is never able to clean up, because the
/boot partition is full! How to clean this?
See which kernel you are using
dpkg --list | grep linux-image
# For every kernel that is not the one you are using, run:
sudo apt-get -f purge linux-image-extra-4.4.0-1*
# when you are finished, clean up everything
sudo apt autoremove
# update grub
If apt based solution does not work, pray and do this before the Clean Up step
Delete old kernels besides this one
# **Modify the wildcarded versions according to your existing kernel!**
sudo rm -rf vmlinuz-4.4.0-1* System.map-4.4.0-1* abi-4.4.0-1* initrd-4.4.0-1* config-4.4.0-1*
