This question already has an answer here:
I have been getting update notifications for a few weeks now but whenever I attempt to install them I get this message;
The upgrade needs a total of 74.6 M free space on disk '/boot'. Please free at least an additional 29.8 M of disk space on '/boot'. Empty your trash and remove temporary packages of former installations using 'sudo apt-get clean'.
First of all I don't have permission to access
/boot (don't know why as its a standalone machine and i'm the only user).
Secondly, I emptied the trash;
Thirdly, I launched Terminal and entered
sudo apt-get clean I was a asked for a
sudo password. I entered my system password. Re-entered
sudo apt-get clean. The cursor stopped blinking - I assumed it was doing it's "thing".
I let it go for about 10 minutes then exited Terminal. Tried to install the updates but just got the same message.
Is there something i'm ignorant of?
This is the output I get from the command
df -h and I have no idea what it all means!
@Tim, What's bash and why am I denied access to
mike@mike-MS-7800:~$ /etc/fstab bash: /etc/fstab: Permission denied mike@mike-MS-7800:~$ df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-root 913G 11G 856G 2% / none 4.0K 0 4.0K 0% /sys/fs/cgroup udev 1.7G 4.0K 1.7G 1% /dev tmpfs 335M 1.6M 333M 1% /run none 5.0M 4.0K 5.0M 1% /run/lock none 1.7G 14M 1.7G 1% /run/shm none 100M 52K 100M 1% /run/user /dev/sda2 237M 182M 43M 81% /boot /dev/sda1 487M 3.4M 483M 1% /boot/efi /dev/sr1 31M 31M 0 100% /media/mike/Optus Mobile mike@mike-MS-7800:~$
I ran this from the terminal and all is now working.
