/boot full - can‘t upgrade

Hallo!

df -h reports…
dev/mmcblk0p1 61M 58M 2.3M 97% /boot

Therefore I can‘t make an upgrade to the newest version.

How can I entlarge the boot partition? Or can I delete files from /boot?

ls -la /boot reports …

When I flash a new SD-Card, I‘ve the same problem - /boot is completly full (97% of 61 MB).
What can I do?
Do I need volumio.initr?

Looks like the sd card isn’t getting resized. Are you sure the boot if fully finished the first time you power up?

I flashex a new SD-card - put ist in the Raspberry 3B and reboot. I wait 10 minutes and made the settings on the ‚Volumio.local‘.

Same result - /boot 97% used.

The size of /boot is imho ok (61K), maybe the file ‚volumio.initrd‘ with 20G ist the problem?!

But I think the resize worked -‚overlay‘ size is 27G

the first partition (/boot) never gets resized, it is fixed at approx. 64MB
Only the 3rd partition will be resized upon first boot (hence the correct overlay size of 27GB).
You cannot just delete files, especially not volumio.initrd.
Without that one, nothing goes…

Hope the PI guys will step in, this issue seems critical.

issue is being investigated, additional kernel for PI4 may be the cause.
