How to Free Up Space in /boot Partition on Ubuntu Linux?

The other day I got a warning that boot partition is almost full or has no space left. Yes I have a separate boot partition not many people do that these days I believe.

This was the first time I saw such an error and it left me confused. Now there are several ways to free up space on Ubuntu or Ubuntu-based distros but not all of them are useful in this case.

This is why I decided to write about the steps I followed to free some space in the boot partition.

Id advise you to carefully read through the solutions and follow the one best suited for your situation. Its easy but you need to be cautious about performing some of these on your production systems.

You dont have to be a terminal expert to do this its just one command and you will be removing unused kernels to free up space in the boot partition.
