I know this thread is old, but because people find it when searching for help I thought I would add another answer. Memory. If you are out of memory you will get this error. You can fix this quickly by adding swap space if you don't already have any.

The simple-minded way to remove old kernels is to use ubuntu-tweak. You select the Janitor tag and tick the Old Kernel box. That gives you a list of kernels it thinks you don't need any more. You can select them all and click Clean and, after a while, the job's done. Being of a nervous disposition I checked which kernel I was running using uname -a but ...

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade done. fixed.

There are two things going on here: New kernels are completely new packages, not updated packages with a newer version number, so installing a new kernel image doesn't replace any older ones. They coexist. Ubuntu uses a bunch of apt magic to protect the last two kernel versions from 'apt-get autoremove' (the latest one, and the one that was last booted). ...

I ran the wrong command in Terminal, it should be make -C /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build M=$(pwd) modules It does work now.

The only solution that worked for me was removing Virtual Box and installing the latest version from the VirtualBox website (version: 4.3.10 (repo) vs. 4.3.22 (website)).

Is there a reason why Ubuntu wont do this automatically? I can see only 1 reason: it does not work flawlessly; there is no clean way to currently decide what the definition of "old kernels" is. "old" does not mean "unused" nor does it mean "unwanted". And any mistake in this will kill a users' machine. So up to now the manual method is preferred ...

Ubuntu only auto-removes items that are no longer needed or are a security risk...So I assume that the reason for this is security purposes. Lets say for some odd reason a new kernel becomes insecure...Then you would be rerouted back to the old kernel temporarily while the new one is being fixed. Also new kernels can come with changes so therefore some ...

In my case I had to upgrade the Hardware Enablement Stack HWE, in order to receive the latest kernel.

Apparently I didn't have the meta package linux-generic installed... A simple sudo apt-get install linux-generic && sudo apt-get install --reinstall nvidia-346 Did the trick!

I WORK AROUND THIS ISSUE USING A PREVIOUS KERNEL! user283885 is offering good solutions. I try other (previous) kernel. You may try a newer or previous kernel (from the ones available in the apt-cache list 3.16*). Here is the test i made: My actual kernel: 3.13.0-45-generic uname -a Linux pc-01 3.13.0-45-generic #74~precise1-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jan 15 ...

13.13 seems to be an old kernel from trusty? Whereas 3.16 is the kernel shipped with utopic. If you ran do-release-upgrade lately, and you still use the old kernel be advised that all your old repositories ( where the old kernel headers reside) are disabled/cleaned from /etc/apt. Usually doing a release upgrade bumps the kernel minor by at least 2 versions ...

While I concur with Rinzwind, I can suggest "Understanding The LINUX KERNEL" by Daniel P. Bovet & Marco Cesati (Pub. O'Reilly, ISBN 978-0-596-00565-8).

apt-get source linux is the easiest way. It will download the source from your repository - and it'll be the same as the version you're running (assuming you haven't already customised it). But if you want to find where the source is maintained you can run: apt-cache showsrc linux Look for the 'Vcs-' attribute (Version control system). It'll usually be ...

First run the cat /etc/issue command to verify what Ubuntu version do you have. I have the same kernel as you do, but my kernel Ubuntu version is 14.04. There is always a difference in between a kernel version and the distribution version.

I figured this out after finding http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/170580/package-linux-headers-3-13-0-27-generic-has-no-installation-candidate and noticing that 14.10 should have shipped with the 3.16 kernel from the start. This machine was upgraded from 14.04 to 14.10 using do-release-upgrade. However, the 3.13.x kernel from 14.04 was installed ...

Since the bcmwl driver needs a patch to work with kernel 3.16 you need to get the Utopic version, just click the link for what Ubuntu version you have and then choose a mirror site to download from. Then double click on the downloaded file 64 bit version 32 bit version

In Trusty/14.04 there are a few more packages that need to be removed, or apt-get will complain. sudo apt-get remove linux-generic-lts-utopic xserver-xorg-lts-utopic libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-utopic libegl1-mesa-drivers-lts-utopic Then install xserver-xorg if not installed, reboot to old kernel version, remove 3.16 kernel(s) and you are good to go. If you use ...

A cleaner way to upgrade to a newer Ubuntu mainline kernel, that integrates well with the package manager and DKMS, is to subscribe to ppa:canonical-kernel-team/ppa and install the new Hardware Enablement Stack: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:canonical-kernel-team/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-vivid However the only release ...

Ubuntu loads into newest kernel by default, and 3.18 is the newest (at least , it's higher version). When you are at grub boot menu, get to Advanced Options for Ubuntu and check if you see the 3.16 kernel there. If you do, refer to this guide for selecting the default version to boot. Alternatively you could always find 3.18 packages with dpkg ...

Updating to newer distributions sometimes removes incompatible programs, you may have to reinstall them. Try running this command in terminal: sudo apt-get install unity-control-center

since Windows 8 is not on your plans (and from what I could read in your question, I think it is not working anymore), only Ubuntu, my suggestions for your specific hardware which I also happen to have are the following taking into consideration that you have made a backup of everything you need from the hard drive and that Windows 8 does not matter. So with ...

You need to download from http://packages.ubuntu.com/utopic/amd64/bcmwl-kernel-source/download and install, the version you have doesn't have the needed patches to work with the 3.16 kernel

The main issue was Intel Graphics Installer. Remove it and the PPA. Then do sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop to recover all the broken packages

Given the kernel panic you've shown (the Windows one might help as well), I would have to wager that this is a memory / RAM issue. What you should do for the time being to pinpoint the actual issue: Reboot your machine. When the boot menu shows up (shown below), select the first Memory Test. Let it run. Note any errors. Please post back with any info ...

My only solution to my own question is to revert back to the old setup. First thins is to uninstall the kernel 3.16 with (replace the version to the right one) sudo apt-get purge linux-image-3.4.0-* linux-headers-3.4.0-* Second thing is to remove everything which brought the problem sudo apt-get purge linux-generic-lts-utopic ...

With Trusty and the 3.13 kernel, it should be as simple as sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source And it might work without rebooting http://packages.ubuntu.com/utopic/amd64/bcmwl-kernel-source/download This updated version might fix it now

To get the module to load automatically on boot, it is not necessary to amend dkms. Please open a terminal and do: sudo -i modprobe wl depmod -a echo wl >> /etc/modules exit You should be all set.

Ubuntu doesn't "load previously opened applications on start-up" out-of-the-box. Try this: open the terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T log off and log on again: the terminal doesn't open automatically and if it does on your system, you have an application installed that does that for you. (but I wouldn't know which: check your system settings. If your ...

First, you should check what's using up all that space with the "Disk Usage Analyzer" tool that ships with Ubuntu. From a terminal, run: gksudo baobab / That should give you an idea of what uses so much space. Then: Check how much space /root uses. Usually it should be less than 1MB. If you have anything larger in there, move it to your /home. Check ...

Apparently it is a harmless message related to a 'PCC' driver: So it looks like you build the PCC mailbox driver which is new in 3.19-rc and that driver fails to load, because it doesn't find hardware to work with. The message is harmless, but it also is not useful. The driver in question seems to be overly verbose to me in general. That is ...

While booting when GRUB appears with entries select the second entry i.e., Advanced options for Ubuntu there you can see different older kernel versions which was installed previously, you can select one among them which works good for you. Otherwise you go to the grub.cfg and paste your required kernel version on top of currently installed kernel entry. In ...

Instead of mainline, you should consider LTS enablement stack https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack Where, a newer kernel / graphics stack is backported officially, only for LTS Ubuntu releases. In this case, Precise 12.04.5 has Trusty's kernel (3.13)

By default your higher numbered 3.18 kernel will still be loaded by grub during boot. There are a few options: Just make grub visible and with a longer timeout, so that you can select which kernel you want (suggested for people that often try different kernels); modify grub to select the "out of the box" kernel by default (suggested if you want to keep the ...

This seems to be fixed in Valgrind 3.7.0 and later. If you don't have any particular reason to use such an old version of Valgrind you should probably use the current version (3.10.1).

It seems like your upgrade from Ubuntu 14.04 to 14.10 broke something. You should have kernel version 3.16.0-30 Make sure that your /etc/apt/sources.list only contains entries with 'utopic' and not 'trusty'. Then make sure that following packages are installed, or install them if necessary: apt-get install linux-generic linux-image-generic ...

The installer just runs update-grub when any Kernel-package activity happens. This completely rebuilds the grub bootloader (ie it doesn't update single records). And yes, they are listed by descending version. You can see the listing in the "Ubuntu (advanced)" grub listing... But otherwise, the top one is taken. The easiest fix for you is to just remove ...

You've hosed your system; I hope you have backups. If not, I have some recovery suggestions later. First, though, I want to point out your mistakes so you don't repeat them.... My 14.04 was complaining of 0 bytes on /boot, so I went in and done a sudo apt-get remove linux-headers-3.2.0.2* since there was already a linux-headers-3.2.0.30 available (I ...

The Linux kernel team decided to remove some modules from the base kernel to allow "virtual" images to be slimmed down. The extra modules are moved into linux-image-extra and you can get them installed by typing: sudo apt-get install linux-image-extra-virtual

In Ubuntu 14.04, 64 bit, what worked for me is sudo dpkg-reconfigure virtualbox-dkms

You can already get it by installing the following... linux-generic-lts-utopic linux-image-lts-utopic linux-headers-lts-utopic Just remove linux-generic, linux-image-generic, and linux-headers-generic first. You don't need a PPA.
