Zorin 16 Pro to Zorin 17 Pro Upgrader Problem

It says I do not have enough disk space to continue ..... I need .....

I did a sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

And then followed up with Ubuntu Cleaner ...... but sitll got the same reply .....

Here is my disk analyzer .....

My Gparted photo ......

Looks like the /boot directory is what is causing the flag.
Try running

sudo apt clean && sudo apt autoremove

Check if you had several old kernels:

ls -l /boot

Identify the Old kernels you do not need anymore and remove with apt. Replace old-kernel in the following command with the actual kernel version. For example, if you are removing the 5.15.0-83 kernel:

sudo dpkg --purge linux-image-old-kernel

Would be

sudo dpkg --purge linux-image-5.15.0-83

Be sure to upgrade... You can check with

apt list -u

And upgrade with

sudo apt upgrade

All packages must be upgraded prior to running the Zorin Release Upgrader.

Did you clean out any kernels?

The Brave Browser repo is always tons of fun...
I would actually just remove it and its repositories and readd - reinstall after upgrading to 17.

OK I deleted brave browser in the terminal and did the upgrade but the items we want to remove are still there ..... did a check on Synaptic and Brave and it's Keyring are gone ..... also ran Ubuntu Cleaner again and it found more stuff to remove which it did .....

Should we try the 17 upgrader again ?????? .....

By the way I tried the normal as well as the minimal install and they both said the same thing with the same amount of disk space required ..... if that helps ....

You can elevate to root

sudo -i

Launch file manager

nemo

Or

nautilus

Then navigate to /etc/apt/sources.list.d

Look through the files and remove Brave Browser or other defunct repositories that you no longer need with Right Click.

Sorry it took so long I didn't know what I was doing and it took me for ever to figure it out ..... seems Hidden Files was not selected in Nemo and I found out just by accident as I always have that selected .....

Tried the upgrader again but same thing as before still not enough disk space .....

Here is a list of the kernels I have installed on this drive ..... not sure which ones I should delete ......

Just ran Ubuntu Cleaner again and it cleaned it for me .... it removed all the old .91 kernels .....

Is there away to move some MB's to my /Boot partition from my swap partition as I'm running 16 GB of RAM so I probably safe with removing some from there ..... I could remove all 2 something GB but that is kinda a lot for a /Boot partition .....

This would be like a last ditch effort unless we can find addition stuff in my /Boot partition to remove .....

Yes, using Gparted, you can resize adjacent partitions as needed.

Yes, it looks like you any had two older kernels, not a lot... Removing one and leaving the other as a fallback is a good idea.

Yup ..... that sounds like a plan ..... I can take some from my swap partition add it to my boot and then take some from my / partition and add it back to my swap partition .....

Is there a clear detailed instructions on how to move partitions ????? .....

Can you just slide the partition bar back and forth to increase or decrease the size of the partition ????? .....

Found a Youtube video on extending partitions using Gparted .... worked just fine as I extended my /boot partition to 600 mb and deleted my swap drive and left it as non alighted .... seemed to work ......
