The Volume Boot Has Only 0 Bytes Disk Space Remaining

I updated my Ubuntu Desktop OS over the Easter weekend. After the update I static getting a error dialog window with the message “The volume boot has only 0 bytes disk space remaining”. After some research I discovered that the problem was that I had multiple Linux Kernel Images on my machine after the update which was consuming the space. To list the available linux images I did:

dpkg --get-selections | grep "linux-image-[[:digit:]].*" | tr "\t" ";" | cut -d ";" -f1

The output:

linux-image-3.19.0-33-generic
linux-image-3.19.0-43-generic
linux-image-3.19.0-47-generic
linux-image-3.19.0-49-generic
linux-image-3.19.0-51-generic
linux-image-3.19.0-56-generic

So there we go I have many linux images. I removed the first four and left the last two:

sudo apt-get purge linux-image-3.19.0-33-generic linux-image-3.19.0-43-generic linux-image-3.19.0-47-generic linux-image-3.19.0-49-generic
