Many thanks for your replies.  I was going by the descriptions of the

Bug #1054927 reported by Henri Sivonen 
<> on 2012-09-23

This bug report is a duplicate of: Bug #1357093: Kernels not 
autoremoving, causing out of space error on LVM or Encrypted 
installation or on any installation, when / 
in which identical errors were reported many times, up to 2016  I have 
the same bug in Xenial.
My machine sent a report and the bug screen opened when opening Firefox: 
I am not sure whether in response to my search for full boot partition 
problem or not.  It was very helpful anyway!
I used only apt clean  and apt upgrade, not dist-upgrade I think.
However I have now solved it with Ubuntu Tweak, using the janitor.

This is a copy of my comment sent at the end of the above bug report:

I have the same bug in Xenial: reported today on request from Jarnos in 
bug #798414 on 2016-05-26
Fixed in Ubuntu Tweaks Janitor yesterday.  Now I have plenty of room in 
boot partition.

I am sorry to have caused confusion.  I shall take note of your advice 
when updating/upgrading.  There were about 15 old kernels and a lot of 
other rubbish filling the boot partition before the janitor was used!
