I get the same problem. apt-get -f install does nothing (same error).

That worked. Thank you!

I'm just wondering if this really is a "solution". I wish the updater process would check for the available space before installing anything, as well as was able to delete the old kernels if necessary. ATM I have four different kernel versions left by Hardy's update process. Wouldn't it be enough to leave only the newly installed one and the previous one? My /boot is only 100MB so I guess I will have to delete the old kernels manually all the time until this issue is addressed.

Removing older kernels is being addressed with the following proposal:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelTeam/removing-old-kernels

In the meantime you'll have to continue to manage your own disk space with regards to installed kernels.
