This question already has an answer here:

/boot only has 243 MB of space with 180MB used (according to GParted) I'm trying to install updates, but i need another 24.9MB freed.

I want to resize /boot to give it an extra GB (or so) so i can continue downloading updates.

GParted won't seem to let me do that.

Follow these instructions to clear space:

Not enough free disk space when upgrading

I find the ubuntu-tweak method works well.
