Im not sure if that done anything. With every command typed I was met with this response:

Code:
sudo apt-get --purge autoremove linux-image-4.4.0-72-generic
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package 'linux-image-4.4.0-72-generic' is not installed, so not removed
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 linux-image-extra-4.4.0-36-generic : Depends: linux-image-4.4.0-36-generic but it is not going to be installed
 linux-image-extra-4.4.0-72-generic : Depends: linux-image-4.4.0-72-generic but it is not going to be installed
 linux-image-generic-lts-xenial : Depends: linux-image-4.4.0-72-generic but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

Ok. What a mess.

You shouldn't have got that message for e.g. linux-image-4.2.0-27-generic because it is installed. Are you sure you got exactly the same message? Can you use the dpkg -l command to see if that package is still installed (no need to post any output)?

Normally, trying the apt-get -f install option would be a good bet, but because of the lack of space for anything to be installed, plus the fact you probably need to keep linux-image-generic-lts-xenial around, I don't think it is an option here, so we'll have to try something else.

It might have been the autoremove causing the error.

Try:

Code:
sudo apt-get purge linux-image-4.2.0-27-generic
P.S. Don't give up. We can try removing things with dpkg. There are always options.

I apologise, qth89. I don't seem to be helping you much at all. Hopefully someone else will be along who can help out.

With dpkg, if you want to try it:

Code:
sudo dpkg --purge linux-image-4.2.0-27-generic
If that fails,

Code:
sudo dpkg --purge --force-all linux-image-4.2.0-27-generic
