I'm not sure if this helps to have another data point, but I think I'm running into this bug. I originally installed Ubuntu 20.04 on a 1 TB drive and chose to have it encrypted. It looks like the installation created a 704 MB /boot:

$ df -h /boot
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/nvme0n1p2 704M 564M 89M 87% /boot

... which of course now is causing me all kinds of headaches. Today, the linux-firmware package is failing to install because there's not enough space in /boot.

This is all the more absurd given that I have a 1 TB hard drive. Surely the installation could take total drive size into account when creating the /boot partition?

This is also compounded by the fact that apt currently has 4 kernels installed. I thought the max was 3? But that's off-topic.
