    Try running this to see where the most data on your drive is:

    Code:
    du -h --max-depth=1 / 2> /dev/null
    Note: the 2> /dev/null is there to get rid of the "permission denied" messages when it tries to work thru /proc.

    It's probably yer package cache.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get autoremove

    Then that's the best you can do. /var stores the package cache (more specifically /var/cache/apt/archives/). If you want to delete the debs there, there shouldn't be any problems outside of having to download them again if they are needed.
