Bug Description

Ubuntu 14.04 is running on a standard installation with fully encrypted disk. After a few months the update breaks because of a crowded /boot partition. As a workaround it would be possible to remove old kernel images.

This is a heavy security issue as it prevents the whole system from being updated. Could be reproduced on several systems.
