Exactly.  FWIW, I kind of expected that, it's a rather common error
when installing linux-image packages because

- they are rather large and dump everything into the root partition

- old versions are not automatically deleted by apt/aptitude.

Also note that during the package upgrades you need to have enough free
space for both the old and the new version of the package.
