    You have run out of space on your /boot or /boot/efi partition. You may have several previous installations on it. Make sure you have only the current and previous boots and completely remove any earlier ones (I usually find synaptic the easiest way to way to do this). – AFH Apr 29 '19 at 20:16

Here's the problem: gzip: stdout: No space left on device

Looks like you are out of free disk space. If you have a separate boot partition, it might be too small. You can check your availability free space with the df -h command and remove some unneeded files. You can also use du -h / to find folders which are taking up a large amount of space.

    The problem is the EFI partition - there are no "large amounts of space" to be taken up, as it is only 200MB total – Eugen Rieck Apr 29 '19 at 20:12

You have no more room on your EFI system partition (/dev/nvme0n1p2, mounted at /boot/efi).

This can happen, if you just reuse a Microsoft EFI partition without resizing it - it is designed to hold only the Windows boot files and not to allow other OSes to store theire boot files there.

  • If Pascal Deneaux boots their system from a LiveUSB, could they shrink the second partition, removing space from its front to make free space to expand the EFI system partition, then resize that, safely? (Always, always, backup, regardless!) – K7AAY Apr 29 '19 at 20:17
  • That would be my approach as well, but it might even work by just cleaning up the partition. – Eugen Rieck May 2 '19 at 10:18
