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

Bug description:
  Currently if one chooses to use LVM or encrypted install, a /boot

  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

  For workaround and sytem repair, see
