problem with Russian Ubuntu's

Peace, I have several bionic servers, 2 of which are in Russian, and every other time when a kernel upgrade takes place, the Russian servers report that they are out of apt autoremove --purge does not solve the problem. The solution is to manually go to the boot directory and remove the old kernel files and reapply apt-get update && apt-get upgrade. Is there any possible fix for this bug?

It's a shot in the dark, but do your run these after an update?

apt-get autoclean
apt-get autoremove
The later removes "packages that are no longer needed." I think that includes old kernels, but I'm not in a position to test it right now.

i'm pretty sure there's an option to remove unused kernels:
but if one old kernel is already causing trouble, means that the hard drive is way too full anyhow.
you might want to look through it if there's more stuff to remove.
another web search will enlighten you on how to do that. seriously, that's the sort of stuff people ask all the time even though the solutions are already out there by the busload.


kernel, russian, ubuntu 18.04
