Your problem isn’t the 18GB free on /

The problem is:

/dev/sda1                  236M  226M     0 100% /boot

The package installer is working on /boot/vmlinuz-3.13.0-91-generic and there is no space available.

You need to increase the size of this partition.

As Anwar stated in comment a minute ago see: askubuntu.how-do-i-increase-the-size-of-boot

Originally I said to see the Q&A: askubuntu.com ..how-to-increase-size-of-boot-partition-using-gparted which is also helpful.
