Kernel upgrade won't install, claims not enough space on /boot

On my laptop at home when I run yum update it doesn't work and I have to use KPackage Kit to install packages because there I can uncheck the kernel package.

I get an error complaining about not enough free space on /boot, but it appears I have enough space. When I get home I can post output from yum update and df -h /boot

I have Fedora 15.
Fedora 16 64 Bit (Fedora 13 install upgraded to 14 with preupgrade, then 15 using --distro-sync) - KDE 4.6.5 HDD Reporting SMART erorrs, using SSD with Fedora 20, XFCE install with yum install @kde-desktop
