I am trying to update my ubuntu system on the pi, but I always get a message mentioning I need more space on my /boot. I tried deleting some files, but that doesn’t work. Is there a way i can resize the boot file?
EDIT: the solution for this as @anfederman mentioned is to increase the boot size. You can use either a fully fledged ubuntu system, i.e. a machine running ubuntu, or a raspberry pi with an sd card usb adapter (this was an expensive option for me, and I had some old computers. So, I went with the second option)
To do this:
1 - install gparted on ubuntu system using:
sudo apt-get install gparted
2 - make sure you have latest version of e2fsck
e2fsck -V (if not, use this tutorial)
3 - follow this tutorial it explains it very nicely and clearly.
EDIT 2: fair warning, when I attempted to change the bootsize after initializing and updating, it didn’t work. So, I had to resize the partition before booting up the pi for the first time
That should be it! Good luck and happy developing!
