My first issue was when I tried to
apt-get update or
apt-get upgrade. On upgrade I get the following error:
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these. The following packages have unmet dependencies: linux-image-server : Depends: linux-image-3.2.0-27-generic but it is not installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.
I tried running apt-get install -f and this was the output(after saying yes on prompt)

I tried running
apt-get autoremove and it gives me the same error as
When I run
df, I get this for

So, I read elsewhere that I should try to purge old kernels. I checked for what kernels I had with:
$ dpkg -l linux-image-\* | grep ^ii ii linux-image-2.6.38-13-server 2.6.38-13.52 Linux kernel image for version 2.6.38 on x86_64 ii linux-image-3.0.0-13-server 3.0.0-13.22 Linux kernel image for version 3.0.0 on x86_64 ii linux-image-3.0.0-14-server 3.0.0-14.23 Linux kernel image for version 3.0.0 on x86_64 ii linux-image-3.0.0-15-server 3.0.0-15.26 Linux kernel image for version 3.0.0 on x86_64 ii linux-image-3.0.0-16-server 3.0.0-16.29 Linux kernel image for version 3.0.0 on x86_64 ii linux-image-3.0.0-17-server 3.0.0-17.30 Linux kernel image for version 3.0.0 on x86_64 ii linux-image-3.2.0-24-generic 3.2.0-24.39 Linux kernel image for version 3.2.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP ii linux-image-3.2.0-25-generic 3.2.0-25.40 Linux kernel image for version 3.2.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP ii linux-image-3.2.0-26-generic 3.2.0-26.41 Linux kernel image for version 3.2.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP
When I try to remove the oldest with this:
$ sudo apt-get purge linux-image-2.6.38-13-server Reading package lists... Done 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-image-server : Depends: linux-image-3.2.0-27-generic but it is not going to be installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
How can I free up or extend boot without messing up my installation?
