I had same issue with 8.04. I removed through synaptic my custom kernel
2.6.25. And later during an update i noticed this:

Processing triggers for libc6 ...
ldconfig deferred processing now taking place
Processing triggers for initramfs-tools ...
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-
Cannot find /lib/modules/
update-initramfs: failed for /boot/initrd.img-
dpkg: subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1

Managed to solve the issue by removing stale configuration files in

stale files in /var/lib/initramfs-tools after removing kernel
