Resizing the /Boot Partition in Ubuntu
October 16, 2017 at 07:42 AM
I have a Ubuntu VM that's currently running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. I am needing to upgrade and patch it but get an error about how the /boot partition is too small. Reading around this is a common problem with this version and looking to upgrade. So I installed Gparted and gave the VM another 5gb. I unmounted the /boot partition in Gparted but am still unable to extend this partition or my /dev/sda5 partition that need a bit more space. See the screenshot below for what I am seeing. Any ideas to get this working? I am betting I am missing something obvious.
