But for some reason ubuntu server does not have this problem. It is 
upgraded by hand using apt-get directly which may be part of the 
difference, but I do not seem to be able to get anywhere with autoremove 
on Studio either.

The one place server does fail, is the kernel left from before an upgrade. 
It seems the files are left in place but there is no record of the package 
in apt.

There are currently 9 kernels in my 14.04 Studio install and only two in 
my 14.04 Server install.
