    Default Installation of kernel-default-5.14.21-150400.24.18.1.x86_64 failed.

    Hi there!
    Today, I wanted to update my system (openSuse Leap 15.4), but installation of kernel-default-5.14.21-150400.24.18.1.x86_64 failed.
    Code:

    I can read this package needs 14MB on /boot, and I have 113MB available:

    /dev/sda1       244M  115M  113M  51% /boot
    

    I don't have an idea why this package installation fails.

    Please, can somebody help me?
    Thank you in advance.

    It needs 14M more than what is available. Why is your /boot only 244M? Do you have more than one kernel currently installed? If yes, uninstall the oldest to make room. If you only have one currently, then you'll need to create more space on sda1, or abandon use of a separate /boot filesystem, hosting kernels, initrds and boot files on the / filesystem instead.

    If you need to take the abandon route, first unmount /dev/sda1. Then mount it on /mnt. From there you can copy all files to /boot. Next remove the fstab entry for sda1. If Grub is installed on sda1, then it will need to be reinstalled. After that you should be able to reboot and have plenty space for more kernels and initrds.

    244M is fine for an ESP partition, but marginal for a /boot partition. Kernels and initrds have turned into monsters over the years.

    If all the above isn't enough help to get you going, report back including input+output from the following (enclosed in code tags, copied & pasted without editing or embellishment):
    Code:
    sudo parted -l
    lsblk -f
    cat /etc/fstab
    ls -Gg /boot/
    Reg. Linux User 211409 *** multibooting since 1992
    Primary: 15.4, TW, 15.1 & 13.1 on Haswell @earthlink.net
    Secondary: eComStation (OS/2) &15.4 on i965P/Radeon
    Tertiary: Debian, Fedora, Mageia, more on Rocket Lake & older Intel, AMD, NVidia....

    Thank you, very much.
    I reinstalled OpenSuse with 1GB for /boot partition.

    Nice that you seem to have solved this, but I see you started this with telling you wanted to update using zypper dup. Leap 15.4 is NOT Tumbleweed and zypper dup is not the correct way of updating Leap. You should either use zypper patch (to restrict to the bare official openSUSE Update repos), or zypper up (which will do the same as zypper patch + installing newer versions of packages you have on other enabled repos).
