Somewhat related to my other question Existence of nonprincipal ultrafilters on sets, is it known whether it is consistent with ZF that every infinite set has a free (nonprincipal) ultrafilter, but not every filter on a Boolean algebra can be extended to an ultrafilter? (Again, use you favorite interpretation of "infinite" here. Large cardinals may be used.)
