Richard L Cooper, did you sometimes install new kernels by Software
Updater or e.g. by 'sudo apt-get dist-upgrade'? If so, you were affected
by Bug #1624644.

You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu
Touch seeded packages, which is subscribed to unattended-upgrades in

  Autoupdater fills /boot and crashes because old kernel images are
  never removed

Status in unattended-upgrades package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Steps to reproduce:
  1) Install Ubuntu with the default LVM encryption recipe
  2) Set Ubuntu to automatically install security updates on the background
  3) Use ubuntu for 5 months

  Actual results:
  The system automatically installs security updates for the kernel under 
/boot. It's never removes previous kernel images. After about five months, the 
/boot partition created by the install recipe (i.e. sized according to the 
judgment of Ubuntu developers—not me) fills up and the unattended updater 
crashes during the next kernel update.

  Expected results:
  Expected the unattended updater to leave the nearest kernel and the previous 
one on /boot and to automatically remove older kernel images. Expected the 
system installer to set up /boot such that it never runs out of space when the 
system updater operates automatically.
