I'd consider having remnants of old package versions (and lots of them)
to be a bug, but it's your distribution, so having this dismissed is an
answer to this problem nonetheless. Thanks!

  autoremove-kernels doesn't purge kernels

Status in apt package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Maybe this is a configuration issue, but:

  # apt-get --purge autoremove
  Reading package lists... Done

  And the "rc" translates to "Remove/Conf-files". For some reason
  /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01autoremove-kernels (triggered by unattended-
  upgrades.service) doesn't seem to remove the kernel's configuration

  The kernel images and modules are removed, only the package list (and
  maybe /usr/share/doc/linux*) is cluttered with the remnants of old


   dpkg -l | awk '/^rc.*linux-(image|modules)/ {print $2}' | xargs dpkg

  # lsb_release -r; dpkg -s apt | grep Ver; uname -r
  Release:        18.04
  Version: 1.6.12
