On the other hand if you are using a file system not supported by GRUB or you encrypt the / partition, you must use a /boot partition.

If it gets full the user will not be able to install newer kernels and updates will fail. But the system will be functional.

The snapshot was not mounted, so I could not run mv. I've mounted it and now I have a different error.

Updated the question. There is nothing in dmesg recorded when I try to delete the snapshot.

It is not mounted at all. The system is my home server. And I think that the snapshot was taken after Ubuntu upgrade. I am running now Ubuntu 13.10 64bit
