My question: How does one deal with this?

Thank you in advance!

Your boot partition is full. Show the current version of your kernel.

uname -r

Run the following commands to remove all the kernels you have installed that aren't your newest kernel.

dpkg -l linux-{image,headers}-"[0-9]*" | awk '/^ii/{ print $2}' | grep -v -e `uname -r | cut -f1,2 -d"-"` | grep -e '[0-9]' | xargs sudo apt -y purge
sudo apt automremove
