    when i go to update manager and i try to update software update it wont work help!!!!

    so i boot up ubuntu for the first time ever i wached some youtube videos that said to go to update manager to update software so i did that but when i press install updates a messege comes up saying this Not enough free disk space

    The upgrade needs a total of 608 M free space on disk '/'. Please free at least an additional 469 M of disk space on '/'. Empty your trash and remove temporary packages of former installations using 'sudo apt-get clean'. so i thought that all i have to do is go into windows operating system and uninstall some things in there but i did just that and then came back to ubuntu and it still says the same thing I NEED HELP PLEASE

    Deleting stuff from Windows probably won't be of much help with the amount of space available on your Ubuntu partition.

    First of all, this might sound obvious, but have you emptied Ubuntu's trash yet?

    Another thing to keep in mind is that temporary files are generally deleted when you reboot Ubuntu: sometimes this can help.

    Open a terminal in Ubuntu and type in lowercase (DF -A)

    df -a

    then paste back what it shows you here please.

    Wubi install and 2.7 gig for the OS ........ am surprised it runs ........ its full already .....
    not sure what you will be able to free up there ........ needs someone to answer this
    that uses wubi


    /dev/loop0 2721217 2706577 14640 100% /
    That must be the minimum you can get it running in ........

    Yet you have 20 gig free space on sda1 ........ not sure how you can get as much as 600 meg back .... but you may
    Try looking at the link below ( there is some useful information there I think ) - until someone comes along that uses wubi
