Bug Description

package initramfs-tools 0.99ubuntu13 failed to install/upgrade: ErrorMessage: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1

'do-release-upgrade' reported an error and tried to launch a browser using "xdg-open" but failed (presumably since it would have to use a text-only user agent to file the bug.

Failure is due to /boot/ file-system hitting 100%

df
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda5 233335 222523 0 100% /boot

This is the same as bug #798414 but should be handled properly, not just giving a warning. This should be part of the pre-upgrade checks that ensure sufficient space.
