I think I see the same issue. I just looked at /usr/lib/modules and see
one extra directory for kernel that isn't installed (5.10.0-18-amd64).
Because this issue seemed familiar I looked at my bash command history
and that has me cd'ing into that directory and doing a du command there
and then deleting stuff. So I guess I've also resorted to manually
cleaning it up in the past.
