Bug Description

I don't know how important but I thought I better report it. On doing a apt-get autoremove it removes linux-image-extra-3.18.0-8-generic and linux-image-generic and then gives an error:

ERROR (dkms apport): kernel package linux-headers-3.18.0-8-generic is not supported
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.18.0-8-generic (x86_64)

As I am using 3.18.0-13 I don't think it's going to be a problem (although I haven't restarted) but should apt be removing parts of a kernel that may still be used?

uname -a: Linux leviathan 3.18.0-13-generic #14-Ubuntu SMP Fri Feb 6 09:55:14 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
