Problem with software center


This is the code that it gives when I try and repair the software center:

At first glance, I would say that you have filled up a file system and anything using that space is probably crashing, corrupting, will error out, or a combination of those. You may have to fix the space issue before you can fix anything else.

One way that you can clean up some space is remove the old versions of packages that are no longer needed. You can do that by opening a terminal and issuing this command:

sudo apt-get autoclean

I originally had a dual boot system set up with windows 7 and ubuntu 14.04 and eventually had tons of problems with windows so I deleted. But I originally only allocated a small amount of space for ubuntu. Now ubuntu is on the verge of being out of space. Is there anyway to increase space without removing ubuntu and re installing?

Better to use sudo apt-get clean. Autoclean is pretty selective in what it removes.

However, even in doing this, you will no doubt come up against the space problem again very quickly. You need to give yourself a much larger breathing space.

Yes there is (by grabbing space from the partition that contained the deleted Windows 7).

Can you please paste the output (in CODE tags) from:

Code:
sudo fdisk -l
That will allow us to determine what partitions you have set up and how big your disk is.

Thanks. You can insert CODE tags easily in the Advanced Editor (highlight the text in question and click on the # symbol) like this:

Code:
Here is some code or output.
Can you also paste the output from the following commands:

Code:
df -h

sudo du -a / | sort -n -r | head -n 10
(the latter will take a while to run - ignore the warnings)

Thanks.

Thanks. As you can see, the chokepoint appears to be your /boot directory in /dev/sda1, which at 236M is too small for the contents (or at least for the additional kernel you're trying to install into it (see post #1)).

Due to the rest of your system being encrypted LVM, probably the best approach would be to purge some of the old kernels from /boot.

So, could you please paste the output from:

Code:
dpkg -l '*linux-image-*'
so that we can see which kernels you have installed.

Also, can you paste the output from:

Code:
uname -a
so we can see which kernel you're currently running.

P.S. You may also want to edit your previous post to remove any references to your real name, if that is indeed it, to assure anonymity.

^ simple enough, purge everything but the last.

Thanks. Just a quick note that the output from dpkg -l expands depending on how wide your terminal is, so you would get more (non-truncated) information on each line if you enlarge your terminal window.

Can you please do that and paste the info here so that we can see the full package names.

My bad here is the expanded version:

Great, thanks.

You've got some semi-installed kernels in there, no doubt due to this problem. So, we'll get rid of those and previous kernels, leaving your current kernel and the preceding one as a fallback (the latter purely because the extras for your current kernel weren't fully installed):

Code:
sudo apt-get --purge autoremove linux-image-4.2.0-27-generic

sudo apt-get --purge autoremove linux-image-4.2.0-36-generic

sudo apt-get --purge autoremove linux-image-4.2.0-38-generic

sudo apt-get --purge autoremove linux-image-4.4.0-36-generic

sudo apt-get --purge autoremove linux-image-4.4.0-72-generic
