This question already has an answer here:

I had a problem when I tried to upgrade my PC, today (Nov., 7th, 2015).

The system tells me that I had not enough free space into the "boot" folder to perform the upgrading.

And that's true!

Even the fact that this HDD has more than 80 GB free space, when I go to the "boot" folder the PCmanFM tells me that the "boot" folder has only 42.8 MB free from a 246.8 MB total space.

I tried to erase something big from that "boot" folder, but the system doesn't let me do it.

How can I get more free space into that "boot" folder? Can I?

Thanks a lot for your time!

Greetings & Blessings from Chile!

  • $ lsblk -f would help. – Gayan Weerakutti Nov 7 '15 at 15:09
  • You need root to remove files from /boot. Open terminal and sudo nautilus now you can remove items form /boot. – Mark Kirby Nov 7 '15 at 15:23
