Hi David One option is to install 16.04 or later and configure unattended- upgrades as recommended in the document. I am afraid all the related bugs will not be fixed in 14.04.
Fixing Bug #1460396 and Bug #291342 would also help users of Software Updater even if unattended-upgrades is not used. The changes you suggest have nothing to do with unattended-upgrade (against which this bug is reported). IIRC the default separate /boot size is 500MB in some newer release of Ubuntu. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Touch seeded packages, which is subscribed to unattended-upgrades in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1357093 Title: Kernels not autoremoving, causing out of space error on LVM or Encrypted installation or on any installation, when /boot partition gets full Status in unattended-upgrades: New Status in unattended-upgrades package in Ubuntu: Fix Released Bug description: Currently if one chooses to use LVM or encrypted install, a /boot partition is created of 236Mb Once kernel updates start being released this partition soon fills until people are left unable to upgrade. While you and I might know that we need to watch partition space, many of the people we have installing think that a windows disk is a disk and not a partition, education is probably the key - but in the meantime support venues keep needing to deal with the fact the partition is too small and/or old kernels are not purged as new ones install.
