/boot partition is still full after removing kernels

Hello,

When i installed fedora i followed recommended partition size guide and set /boot size to 250 MB. Today when i ran dnf update command it gave me error:

At least 18MB more space needed on the /boot filesystem.

Then i followed tutorials on how to remove old kernels and i left only with the current one. I managed to shrink /boot partition down to 60MB according to nautilus. Problem is i still get same error:

At least 18MB more space needed on the /boot filesystem.

df -h printed:

/dev/mapper/fedora-root   48G  7,5G   38G  17% /
devtmpfs                 2,0G     0  2,0G   0% /dev
tmpfs                    2,0G   69M  1,9G   4% /dev/shm

tmpfs                    2,0G     0  2,0G   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
tmpfs                    2,0G  812K  2,0G   1% /tmp
/dev/sda1                239M  210M   13M  95% /boot

tmpfs                    396M   20K  396M   1% /run/user/1000

This shows that i have 13MB of free space in /boot but i dont know how is that possible?

Last good idea i tried was to boot gparted live and resize /boot. Then i noticed that gparted is showing my /home partition almost full to the top (400GB) which is not true. I gave up since it would need 6 hours for computer to move it litle bit to the right.

Has anyone have idea why is /boot partition full when its actually not? Also i did empty trash.
