HI hankishenry,

That's a good question!

I'm thinking you might be better served with a newer, but fully supported kernel.  Since both Peppermint 9 and Peppermint 10 are derived from Ubuntu 18.04 LTS - Bionic Beaver, why not upgrade to a newer kernel and see if that helps?  I know my friend and I didn't have any problems when I upgraded her computer's Peppermint 9 kernel with what's called an HWE stack.

To do so you'd run, or copy and paste, this command into your terminal.  Then, after doing so, reboot your computer.  Then run inxi -Fz again to see if that sorts your issue out.

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-hwe-18.04 xserver-xorg-hwe-18.04

Are you running any kind of antivirus software ?



Also (from your inxi output):-
Code: [Select]
           ID-2: /boot size: 705M used: 682M (100%) fs: ext4 dev: /dev/sda2
suggests you've run out of space on your /boot partition .. so there will be no more room for initramfs-tools to create the new initramfs for the new kernels .. which is highly likely why the post-installation script is failing.
(this is why I generally don't use a separate small /boot partition .. it forces you to stay on top of manually removing old kernels)

Can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep 4.15.0
so we can see which kernels you have installed, then we can remove some of the older ones.
