This is probably not the place to say this, but every time I click on saved messages of any user, I see my saved posts and comments instead. Is this a bug in lemmy? I couldn’t find any issues on github related to this.

Jami is available for ios, but I think it uses more bandwidth than jitsi because of end to end encryption


My advice in the above post is partially the reason this post had to be created 😅

sudo update-initramfs

Don’t delete any kernels (vmlinuz-*) or initrd images (initrd.img-*), just to ensure nothing bad happens again. And, after updating the initramfs, run sudo update-grub. If you can boot into a livecd, could you post a screenshot of everything in /boot like you did in the original post?

That’s not what will happen. Note the version number in my reply. Ubuntu based distros won’t remove old kernels after updating to newer kernels. This is probably what’s taking space in your /boot partition.

In the screenshot you posted, there are 5 kernels:

  • vmlinuz-5.11.0-40-generic
  • vmlinuz-5.11.0-41-generic
  • vmlinuz-5.11.0-43-generic
  • vmlinuz-5.11.0-44-generic
  • vmlinuz-5.11.0-46-generic

But there are only three initramfs images:

  • initrd.img-5.11.0-40-generic
  • initrd.img-5.11.0-41-generic
  • initrd.img-5.11.0-43-generic

It is likely that your boot partition doesn’t have enough space to store the initramfs image for booting kernels 5.11.0-44 and 5.11.0-46. To make enough space, you can remove the old kernels. According to your uname -a output, you are currently running kernel 5.11.0-43. And I assume you have no problem with the current kernel. If that is the case, there is no need for kernel 5.11.0-40 and 5.11.0-41.

So, you can remove the two kernels. Old kernels are probably not removed by default so that you can boot to the previous kernel if the latest kernel has issues. After doing so, reboot to ensure nothing has gone wrong. Now, try sudo apt upgrade again, which should hopefully install the latest kernel and generate its initrd file. Reboot to the newly installed kernel and try sudo apt autoremove to remove any remaining pacakges as @kromonos@fapsi.be suggested

sudo apt remove linux-image-5.11.0-40-generic

I don’t use a debian based distro now, so you should probably wait until someone else says doing this is safe

This means you run version 5.11.0-43-generic

Try removing linux-image-5.11.0-40-generic, which is the oldest version in your screenshot

What does uname -a output?
