software updater(solved)
« on: October 04, 2014, 06:00:05 am »
i have been trying to update software and i get this The upgrade needs a total of 82.2 M free space on disk '/boot'. Please free at least an additional 58.7 M of disk space on '/boot'. Empty your trash and remove temporary packages of former installations using 'sudo apt-get clean'.
did what it asked but still getting the same message any ideas

Try clearing your web browser cache.

Also try running:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get autoremove
and letting it remove any orphaned dependencies

Here's how I clean out my closet...  8)

I start by manually removing cruft -- podcasts -- browser cache(s) -- old kernels -- blah, blah, blah.

Then I update the file database.  This will initially take a while.  Subsequent running will be much faster:

Code: [Select]
sudo updatedb
Then I get rid of the usual suspects:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get autoclean
sudo apt-get autoremove
For 'good measure' I update the db again:

Code: [Select]
sudo updatedb
Then I nuke ALL THINGS 'trash', including 'trash' in 'root'.  This takes a while and error messages are normal:

WARNING  Be extremely careful when using the 'rm' command.  Copy n' paste the following code.

Code: [Select]
sudo find / -type d -name '*Trash*' -exec rm -fr {} \;

I do a final update on the db:

Code: [Select]
sudo updatedb
Then restart/reboot

Have you got a separate /boot partition ?

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
ls -l /boot
and
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l
and
Code: [Select]
df -h

OK, were going to remove all the old kernels and support packages ... first run:
uname -a
and make sure it says you're running the 3.13.0-35-generic kernel .. if it does, run this long command:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge linux-image-3.13.0-32-generic linux-headers-3.13.0-32 linux-headers-3.13.0-32-generic linux-image-extra-3.13.0-32-generic linux-image-3.13.0-33-generic linux-headers-3.13.0-33 linux-headers-3.13.0-33-generic linux-image-extra-3.13.0-33-generic linux-image-3.13.0-34-generic linux-headers-3.13.0-34 linux-headers-3.13.0-34-generic linux-image-extra-3.13.0-34-generic
If it errors, post the error back here.
