That confirms it's your boot partition, which is WAY too small. I never
have a separate boot partition that is less then 1024M (1G) for this
very reason. If you can't spare an extra 1G, then you probably shouldn't
be running Ubuntu Studio since it requires, at minimum, 16GB, and that's
just for the installation. To do anything productive you should have at
least 512GB total.
