Hello I have an problem with unmet dependencies, but I cant fix it.

$ sudo apt-get upgrade

Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 linux-server : Depends: linux-headers-server (= 3.2.0.45.54) but 3.2.0.49.59 is installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.

I tried:

$ sudo apt-get -f install 
Reading package lists... Done

Correcting dependencies... Done
........
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/linux-image-3.2.0-49-generic_3.2.0-49.75_amd64.deb (--unpack):
 failed in write on buffer copy for backend dpkg-deb during `./boot/vmlinuz-3.2.0-49-generic': No space left on device
No apport report written because the error message indicates a disk full error
dpkg-deb: error: subprocess paste was killed by signal (Broken pipe)

I tried as well:

$ sudo dpkg --configure -a

But doesn't work cause no space left. So I tried to remove some linux-images, but:

$ sudo apt-get purge linux-headers-3.2.0-37 linux-headers-3.2.0-37-generic linux-image-3.2.0-37-generic

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 linux-server : Depends: linux-headers-server (= 3.2.0.45.54) but 3.2.0.49.59 is to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution)

Can anyone help me?

//Update: Removed old linux-header-* and linux-images-* with dpkg, but:

$ sudo apt-get -f install

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of linux-server:
 linux-server depends on linux-image-server (= 3.2.0.45.54); however:
  Version of linux-image-server on system is 3.2.0.49.59.
 linux-server depends on linux-headers-server (= 3.2.0.45.54); however:
  Version of linux-headers-server on system is 3.2.0.49.59.
dpkg: error processing linux-server (--configure):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
No apport report written because the error message indicates its a followup error from a previous failure.
                                                                                                          Errors were encountered while processing:
 linux-server
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

//Update 2: Fixed it by removing linux-server, linux-headers-server and linux-image-server.
