Cannot update any of my applications

My YunoHost server

Hardware: Old laptop
YunoHost version: 11.2.5
I have access to my server : Through SSH
Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ? : no

Description of my issue

I get this error whenever I try to update an app:

Error: "400"
Action: "PUT" /yunohost/api/apps/bookstack/upgrade
Error message:
You cannot do this right now because dpkg/APT (the system package managers) seems to be in a broken state… You can try to solve this issue by connecting through SSH and running sudo apt install --fix-broken and/or sudo dpkg --configure -a and/or sudo dpkg --audit.

I tried connecting to my server through SSH to run these commands and I get more errors:

admin_name@server_name:~$ sudo apt install --fix-broken

The following packages have been unpacked but not yet configured.
They must be configured using dpkg --configure or the configure
menu option in dselect for them to work:
 linux-image-amd64    Linux for 64-bit PCs (meta-package)

The following packages are only half configured, probably due to problems
configuring them the first time.  The configuration should be retried using
dpkg --configure <package> or the configure menu option in dselect:
 linux-image-5.10.0-26-amd64 Linux 5.10 for 64-bit PCs (signed)


So it seems something went wrong when I updated YNH to 11.2.5.
And I guess don’t have enough space left in my /boot partition by what the errors indicate.

here is: df -h

Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
udev            3.9G     0  3.9G   0% /dev
tmpfs           785M  9.6M  775M   2% /run
/dev/sda6       686G   22G  629G   4% /
tmpfs           3.9G  124K  3.9G   1% /dev/shm
tmpfs           5.0M     0  5.0M   0% /run/lock
/dev/sda1       230M  195M   19M  92% /boot
tmpfs           785M     0  785M   0% /run/user/63419

how do I increase the size of /dev/sda1 ?

I see that there’s sudo apt autoremove to clear my unused kernels to maybe free up space from /boot but I am not sure if it’s safe to use.

Hope someone can guide me through this, ty!

Hello,

Before confirming with a “yes”, what does this command sudo apt autoremove say and suggest ?

The following packages will be REMOVED:
  fontconfig graphicsmagick gsfonts libgraphicsmagick-q16-3
  libjs-highlight.js libnode72 libwebpmux3 libwmf0.2-7
  linux-image-5.10.0-16-amd64 linux-image-5.10.0-23-amd64 lua5.1

0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 27 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
2 not fully installed or removed.
After this operation, 941 MB disk space will be freed.

So try to say yes in order to free space on the device.
Then retry the sudo apt install --fix-broken and/or sudo dpkg --configure -a
