Obviously not.

(NB Please use code tags when posting terminal output. It makes it much easier to read.)

First thing to do is see what is available with

df -h

A common solution is to clean your apt cache with

sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get autoclean

Use the forum search tool (icon top right of page) for "no space left on device", and see what you find wink

Re: no space left on device?

there's also the 5 or sometimes even 10% reserved blocks to be taken into account.

cleaning apt cache should help.
there can also be some other problem, which makes some log file overflow (search home folder or /var/log).
you should play around with du and df and try to find the culprit(s).

do you have everything in one big partition? if not, more info is required.

Re: no space left on device?

@OP: often, WM spills lot of messages in file '.xsession-errors' (relevant if you have your OS installation in one big partition). Solution would be:

$ cd $HOME
$ ls -lh .xsession-errors # to check size of this file
$ rm .xsession-errors

Re: no space left on device?

As above - first step to get space is "apt-get autoclean"

"cd /var" then "ncdu"           #        command gives more information that du about disk usage.

"journalctl --disk-usage"   #  will show size of your systemd logging    If it seems large

read man journalctl with reference to --vacuum-size or --vacuum-time

examples of vacuuming here

profit.

Re: no space left on device?

You can use baobab to get a visual on your disk space, and see what's causing you to run out of space.

sudo apt-get install baobab

Might be easier to diagnose the problem that way.

Also, during installation, did you install everything on one partition, or seperate it? If the /home directory is separate, then there's probably not enough space allocated for the root directory (where all your programs are installed). Which = repartition time.

df -h output is:

stupid question, but what is /dev/dm-1?

Re: no space left on device?

dm is device mapper... dm-1 is your / partition, that is full.  you could make another logical volume  for /usr, get everything in your /usr direcotry and put it in the /usr partition, and mount it in /usr.
