Better but still a bit full .. if you've already run the housekeeping commands posted by pin, maybe you could offload some user files to an external drive ?

well kinda .. your root partition is still 87% full, so you're still just a few kernel updates away from trouble again.

I take it you mean a black screen ?
(because you obviously don't have a space issue any more)

Are you able to boot the previous kernel ?
(at the GRUB screen .. select an earlier kernel .. it may be in the "Advanced" submenu)

Okay you've lost me...

On one hand you say you have a black screen

Then in the next breath you say no matter which kernel you pick it "starts normally" :-\

If you just power your machine and hit that black screen, does it eventually take you to the desktop if you just wait?
