    'No space left on device'

    Code:
    james@ubuntu:~$ uname -a

    and this too failed. It is really strange that apt-get reports "No space left on device" when we have a free space of 130GB available. It is not now possible to use apt-get for any purpose, as it will immediately find the unmet dependencies and stops. The software updater also has shut down for the same reason. There are two questions:
    1. Is the problem caused by some corruption of my software/data in my computer, or is it some problem with the latest system updates?
    2. How can I climb out of this cul-de-sac?

    Many thanks

    Re: Software Updater tried and failed to install security updates

    zurga; Hi !

    The general thing we see here with those conditions is your /boot directory is full (old kernels).
    The following command is useful for finding out which directories are using all your space...
    Code:
    du -h --max-depth=1 | sort -hr
    and going directly to the suspected heart of the situation:
    Code:
    dpkg -l | grep linux-image 
    ls -la /boot
    If it does turn out to be a full /boot directory. it is "generally" not that difficult to clean up.

    Think the above answers both your questions.

    Re: Software Updater tried and failed to install security updates

    Bashing-om Thank you for responding to my questions.
    From your comment I infer that the error report "No space left on device" does not refer to the space left on the main drive (more than 120 GB), but to space specifically allocated to the boot kernel or some such: is that correct?
    Acting on the assumption that /boot is too full I did:
    Code:
    $ du -h /boot
    16K    /boot/grub/locale
    4.3M    /boot/grub
    576M    /boot
    Also, listing the files in /boot, I find many old versions of the following types of files:
    Code:
    abi-*-generic
    config-*-generic
    initrd.img-*-generic
    System.map-*-generic
    vmlinuz-*-generic
    I assume that it is safe to remove these except the latest few by ordinary commands such as 'mv' which would create a temporary backup. If so, then hopefully the saved space in /boot will enable 'apt-get' to become operational again. Then I will be able to purge old kernel files of which there are many.
    Thanks for your help.

    Re: Software Updater tried and failed to install security updates

    zurga;
    Your understanding of the space usage is correct.
    In this instance from your advisements, I do not see the /boot directory as a problem.

    what results from :
    Code:
    df -i
    too see what the inode situation is. As out of inodes will produce the same errors.
    As to removing old kernels.
    To install any thing installed use the package manager ! .. Else dependencies and config files resolvement will drive you insane. Manually removing files related to the kernel is a chore !

    The GUI method is via "synaptic" package manager; or,
    from the command line a procedure I prefer:
    Code:
    uname -r ##identify the kernel you are presently booting DO NOT remove this one ! Keep one other for a back up.
    dpkg -l | grep linux-image- ##identify all installed kernel images
    dpkg -l | grep linux-headers- ##identify all kernel header files
    sudo apt-get --purge remove linux-image-3.2.0-31-generic ##for example
    sudo apt-get --purge remove linux-headers-3.2.0-31-generic ##for example
    Run the "dpkg" commands once more and I expect you will see files marked as "rc" -(R)emoved but (C)onfig files remain.

    While there is no built in way to remove all of your configuration information from your removed packages you can remove all configuration data from every removed package with the following command.
    Code:
    dpkg -l | grep '^rc' | awk '{print $2}' | xargs dpkg
    Now if you prefer the GUI method instead, I will provide guidance for it also.

    we wont know 'till we know

    Re: Software Updater tried and failed to install security updates

    Bashing-om

    Following is list of inodes as you suggested. They are only 1% used, so they do not seem to be the problem - except /dev/loop0:
    Code:
    $ df -ih
    Filesystem     Inodes IUsed IFree IUse% Mounted on
    /dev/loop0       1.1M  1.1M   317  100% /
    udev             208K   545  207K    1% /dev
    tmpfs            211K   462  211K    1% /run
    none             211K     3  211K    1% /run/lock
    none             211K     8  211K    1% /run/shm
    /dev/sda5        123M   28K  123M    1% /host
    /dev/sda3         86M  178K   86M    1% /home/zurga/mnt/c-disk
    And also just for the record:
    Code:
    $ df -h
    Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/loop0       17G   12G  3.7G  76% /
    udev            1.5G  4.0K  1.5G   1% /dev
    tmpfs           579M  868K  579M   1% /run
    none            5.0M     0  5.0M   0% /run/lock
    none            1.5G  160K  1.5G   1% /run/shm
    /dev/sda5       147G   24G  123G  17% /host
    /dev/sda3       143G   57G   86G  40% /home/zurga/mnt/c-disk
    For the purpose of this discussion /dev/sda3 should be entirely disregarded as an external device.

    I am fully aware of the risk entailed in the manual modification of installed files, due to possible violation of dependencies, and would not ordinarily contemplate such action. However the problem in this case is that apt-get is not operational and cannot be used. As for prference between using gui or command line, I far prefer the latter as only it will give me a documented and verifiable method for performing a task. As a matter of curiousity, I would like to know what criteria determine whether too much space is occupied by old kernels in the /boot.

    Thanks again for your help.

    Re: Software Updater tried and failed to install security updates

    zurga; Hi !

    I still fail to see where the problem lies, in spite of my expectations.
    We need to examine the "/usr" directory as per the error message:
    error creating directory `./usr/src/linux-headers-3.2.0-54/Documentation': No space left on device
    As to apt-get, I anticipate it only has a problem installing any additional kernels and related installs, That should not effect it's ability to remove software from the system.

    Headroom: Well as a general rule 85% capacity is generally considered max, the larger the partition the greater one may raise that percentage. As what you see is not really what you have in use... house keeping - disk file allocation info - and such, as well as "root's space" as dedicated space a normal user has no access to.

    --------
    Now I could be totally wrong .. but I would think purging kernels as related in the /boot directory that action would also remove the files residing in "/usr/src" directory.

    Worth a shot and see what results.

    just try'n to help

    Re: Software Updater tried and failed to install security updates

    Hi Bashing-om

    The oldest kernel version I have is 2.6.38-11. The one that is currently active, and suffers from unmet dependencies is 3.2.0-54. If I try to remove the oldest version:
    Code:
    $ sudo apt-get --purge remove linux-image-2.6.38-11-generic
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
    The following packages have unmet dependencies.
     linux-headers-3.2.0-54-generic : Depends: linux-headers-3.2.0-54 but it is not going to be installed
     linux-headers-generic-pae : Depends: linux-headers-3.2.0-54-generic-pae but it is not going to be installed
    E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
    you will see that it trips over the unmet dependencies, and suggests to use 'apt-get -f install'. And if I try to 'install' then I get the 'No space left on device'

    Following indicates the state of /usr showing 100% inode usage:
    Code:
    $ df -h /usr
    Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/loop0       17G   12G  3.7G  76% /
    $ df -ih /usr
    Filesystem     Inodes IUsed IFree IUse% Mounted on
    /dev/loop0       1.1M  1.1M   281  100% /
    What would happen if I remove the two packages that are broken, which also happen to be in the current kernel? That is if I succeed to remove them either directly by apt-get or through the Synaptic gui, will the system end up in no-mans-land, or will it end up in the previous generation of kernel which was in good working order?

    Thanks.

    Re: Software Updater tried and failed to install security updates

    zurga; Well good. The problem is identified !


    Can you boot an older kernel with no problem booting ? Preferably a kernel directly under the problem kernel version.
    and:
    Show me the output of :
    Code:
    dpkg -l | grep linux-image-
    dpkg -l | grep linux-headers-
    and I will craft us a "dpkg" code and see if dpkg can get us out of this hole. As I have said we do not want to go the manual method to hunt up all those files to remove !
    Apt-get is a front end for the base of the package manager "dpkg" . We can use "dpkg" directly and sometime to greater effect.

    Re: 'No space left on device'

    zurga; Sorry for the delay in getting back at ya .. system problems happen to the best of us - my grub could not find my hard drives when I rebooted !

    To you, lets try; making sure you are booting the 3.2.0-53 kernel :
    Copy and paste ::
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -P linux-image-3.2.0-{24,25,26,27,29,30,31,32,33,34,35,36,37,39,40,41,43,44,45,48,49,54}-generic
    sudo dpkg -P linux-headers-3.2.0-{24,25,26,27,29,30,31,32,33,34,35,36,37,39,40,41,43,44,45,48,49,54}-generic
    And look again and see what there is now to clean up:
    Code:
    dpkg -l | grep linux-image-
    dpkg -l | grep linux-headers-
    As to what is going on, I assume from the references to repeated "/dev/loop0" and it being related to the directory "/usr" .. that this is a wubi install .. and as such the virtual disk is full ! Please verify my thought.

    Give this a try .. and
    my fingers are crossed
    THE current(cy) in Documentation:

    Happy ubutu'n !
