    After updates, wireless is gone and /boot is full

    Yesterday my Dell Inspiron 15 was running Kali fine. I saw there were a lot of updates available, so I installed them.

    Problem #1: when I boot Kali I get an alert saying "Low Disk Space on "boot". The volume "boot" has only 473 kB of disk space remaining".

    DF command
    Filesystem 1k-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted On
    /dev/sda1 240972 228069 462 100% /boot

    ls /boot
    config-4.13.0-kali1-amd64
    config-4.6.0-kali1-amd64
    config-4.9.0-kali3-amd64
    config-4.9.0-kali4-amd64
    grub
    initrd.img... (x7)
    lost+found
    System.map-4.13...
    System.map-4.6...
    System.map-4.9...
    System.map-4.9...
    vmlinuz-4.13...
    vmlinuz-4.6...
    vmlinuz-4.9...
    vmlinuz-4.9...

    Problem #2: looks like Kali has forgotten that my laptop has a wireless adapter. It's not showing when I open the menu in the top-right corner.

    I suppose the lack of wireless functionality is the larger problem. To free up space on boot, could I just delete everything that contains "4.6" and "4.9", and leave everything with "4.13"? Thanks.

    Uname -r: 4.13.0-kali1-amd64
