I have a question open here: What should I do about seeing the message "/boot/config-3.2.0-74-generic: No such file or directory"? which is specifically about the missing config file in
/boot/* however my attempts to update and fix this have unpacked all sorts of other underlying issues. I have something like 8 or 9 updates to the question plus a long back and forth int he comments.
Having now ended up with a list of problem packages (one is mentioned in the question as part of the copy and past error message) I am unsure if asking about this list of problem packages is simply an extension of the existing question (although straying from the original point) or should be a fresh question which nevertheless acknowledges the former question.
I don't want to spam (or at least double post) but I don't want to make my question to broad.
How do I know when I have uncovered the need to answer a second (related) question? Or When is an update a new question?
