I am a newbie at wits end. I have cleaned /boot using many different methods suggested on this site without success. /boot is still 0 bytes free with all old kernels removed. uname -r returns "3.16.0-48-generic". 49,50 and 51 are available in /boot. when I enter "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak" the following returns:

Package linux-image-generic-lts-utopic is not configured yet.

dpkg: error processing package linux-generic-lts-utopic (--configure): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of linux-image-extra-3.16.0-49-generic: linux-image-extra-3.16.0-49-generic depends on linux-image-3.16.0-49-generic; however: Package linux-image-3.16.0-49-generic is not configured yet.

Result of "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak"

Hope someone can help. I am on a steep learning curve. Thanks.

You have not removed older kernels. You are still running an old one in fact. You need to reboot so you are running the latest one, then you can remove an older one to free up some space with sudo dpkg -r linux-image-3.16.0-48-generic, then run sudo apt-get install -f to finish installing the half installed one, and finally sudo apt-get autoremove to clean up all of the older ones.
