   Kernels not autoremoving, causing out of space error on LVM or Encrypted installation or on any installation, when /boot partition gets full

  Please consider enabling Unattended-Upgrade::Remove-Unused-
  Dependencies by default

Status in unattended-upgrades package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  When you install Ubuntu today with full disk encryption you end up
  with a separate small /boot partition (approx 200Mb).  It doesn't take
  long for this to fill up with old kernels.

  While we mark old kernels for auto-removal nothing (on the default
  system) actually triggers removal of unused packages; a human needs to
  invoke (or arrange to be invoked) 'apt-get autoremove'.

  /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades documents an
  Unattended-Upgrade::Remove-Unused-Dependencies configuration option.
  I'd suggest we consider enabling this option by default on new
