    Upgrading from 13.10 to 14.04LTS - Not enough free disk space (PLS HELP A NEWBIE)

    Recently moved on from XP to Ubuntu 13.10 and loving it - however a complete newbie!

    Trying to upgrade from 13.10 to 14.04 LTS but get the following error message

    Screenshot from 2014-04-25 22:44:44.png

    Ubuntu is installed on partitioned 160GB on Samsung NC10 with 2GB ram (partitions are ~72GB each, D:/ is the partition with Ubuntu on and has a good deal of space).

    Screenshot from 2014-04-25 22:54:19.png

    Looking in disk usage it appears the Ubuntu disk appears to only be 7GB


    Screenshot from 2014-04-25 22:49:40.png

    Is this the issue???

    Please help me but you'll need to walk me through this as I'm learning (as I leave MS behind for ever hopefully)!!

    Thanks

    i think that you are correct, and that the total amount of spce, dedicated to ubuntu, is 7Gb

    when i press df , for myself, i get:
    Code:
    /dev/sda2              954750764  17296916   888932224   2% /

    none                     2989044       340     2988704   1% /run/shm
    none                      102400        20      102380   1% /run/user

    I was advised to use to do it through Windows installation, the 160GB HD was always partitioned into 2 equal slices of ~72GB so I thought I'd installed onto the free 72GB D: partition
