Not enough free disk space on /boot partition, Ubuntu on Hyper-V Gen2

Yesterday my Ubuntu 14.04 virtual machine declined to install updates because /boot partition was full.

After some time I found an old forum entry(link) discussing the same problem.

Finally the solution was to run the following command to cleanup old dependencies and kernel versions

sudo apt-get autoremove

sudo apt-get clean
