This question already has an answer here:

I read in another post that kernels are distributed as new releases rather than upgrades. I didn't know this when I was allocating space to my partitions during my initial install of Ubuntu. As a result I ran out of space on my boot partition. Can I increase the size of it using GParted and how do I do this without doing damage to my system?

1 1049kB 512MB 511MB fat32 boot 2 512MB 768MB 256MB ext2 3 768MB 1000GB 999GB lvm

Model: Linux device-mapper (linear) (dm) Disk /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-swap_1: 3712MB Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/4096B Partition Table: loop

Number Start End Size File system Flags 1 0.00B 3712MB 3712MB linux-swap(v1)

Model: Linux device-mapper (linear) (dm) Disk /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-root: 996GB Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/4096B Partition Table: loop

Sorry, don't know how to capture and post the terminal output screen.
