Assuming the two kernels you will want to keep are:

linux-headers-4.10.0-38 linux-headers-4.10.0-38-generic
linux-headers-4.10.0-40 linux-headers-4.10.0-40-generic

So delete the others out of /boot to free space:

sudo rm /boot/*4.10.0-28*
sudo rm /boot/*4.10.0-37*
sudo rm /boot/*4.4.0-103*
sudo rm /boot/*4.4.0-104*
sudo rm /boot/*4.4.0-98*
sudo rm /boot/*4.10.0-28*
sudo rm /boot/*4.10.0-38*
sudo rm /boot/*4.4.0-103*
sudo rm /boot/*4.4.0-98*

This will save you about 500 MB in /boot but doesn’t remove the kernel packages fully. To do that use:

sudo apt autoremove
