    12.04 server - apt-get upgrade failed

    Hello,

    on a Ubuntu 12.04 server I get this message when doing apt-get upgrade:

    Code:
    Could not open file /var/cache/apt/archives/partial/php5-common_5.3.10-1ubuntu3.5_i386.deb - open (28: No space left on device) [IP: 91.189.92.200 80]
    This is only one example, I get this with many packages.

    du -f /var tells:

    Code:
    Filesystem                        Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/mapper/nas--vsnag01-root   15G  2.3G   12G  17% /
    So there is plenty of space.

    apt-get clean and then apt-get upgrade at least starts the upgrade otherwise I get the error with the first package.


    Any ideas?

    Regards,

    Michael

    as it says:

    (28: No space left on device)

    so from a teminal :

    Code:
    sudo rm /var/cache/apt/archives/*
    or use gparted (on unmounted partition of course) to make room

    note: that raid installation might have some right limits

    That didn't help at all.
    Before deleting the files I had 2.3 GB used and 12 GB free
    After that I had 2.2 GB used and 12 GB free. So that wasn't that much of a difference.
    I did (as root) apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

    That brought up this message:

    Code:
    Need to get 88.2 MB of archives.
    After this operation, 775 kB of additional disk space will be used.

    Nonetheless I got the same error message.

    The error suggests a disk space error on one or more partitions. Kindly post the output of:

    Code:
    df -h
