upgrade, but, the disk space is full

Post by saskatchewan » Mon Oct 15, 2018 9:47 am

When I try to upgrade, I get the following message saying the disk space is full, what should I do?

I just tried the following:

Code: Select all

OLDCONF=$(dpkg -l|grep "^rc"|awk '{print $2}')
CURKERNEL=$(uname -r|sed 's/-*[a-z]//g'|sed 's/-386//g')
LINUXPKG="linux-(image|headers|ubuntu-modules|restricted-modules)"
METALINUXPKG="linux-(image|headers|restricted-modules)-(generic|i386|server|common|rt|xen)"
OLDKERNELS=$(dpkg -l|awk '{print $2}'|grep -E $LINUXPKG |grep -vE $METALINUXPKG|grep -v $CURKERNEL)
YELLOW="\033[1;33m"
RED="\033[0;31m"
ENDCOLOR="\033[0m"
sudo apt-get purge $OLDKERNELS
and it returned the following

Re: upgrade, but, the disk space is full

Post by Pierre » Mon Oct 15, 2018 10:04 am

Yep - - this LM19 series is installing a whole lot more kernel(s) than is normally done.

& so your drive / partition will fill up, rather quickly . . ... ..
this will be even more apparent if do use a separate / root & /home partitions,
& where that / root partition will surely fill up.

if you are still in the desktop, then run the Gparted program to see if the disk is still showing as quite full,
& if that program is not installed, then use the Disks Utility, instead.

NB: if you do re-boot with an Disk Full Error, then you could have issues in re-gaining the desktop,
& you may have to purge some extra kernel(s) again.
- - is the machine now working A.ok or not, after the above operation ?.

In the future, please use [code][/code] tags when you paste your output fro Terminal. It makes it a whole lot easier to read for everyone.

Thanks.

Do you have a separate /boot partition? If so, that my be too small for all that's happening with the upgrade.

Hi, gm10.

I assume these lines near the end

Code: Select all

update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-4.13.0-38-generic
WARNING: missing /lib/modules/4.13.0-38-generic

might cause some concerns, because kernel 4.13.0-38 is not present. BUT: 4.13.0-38 is not needed if you have got 4.15.0-36.
In case you are on Mint 19, 4.13.0-38 should not even be present at all.

Regards,
Karl

Hm. Cannot really confirm so.
To me it looks as if Ubuntu deploys roughly the same number of kernel updates on Mint 18.x (Ubuntu 16.04) and on Mint 19 (Ubuntu 18.04) in a given timespan.

I assume that on Mint 18.x too many users still abide by the questionable rule that kernel updates are evil, have therefore disabled levels greater than 3 in Update Manager and never see the available kernel updates.
On Mint 19 Update Manager defaults to display them all, and users (incorrectly) think Mint 19 got more kernel updates than Mint 18.x.

At least the initrd.img for that kernel is still present, maybe more. Still, the error message doesn't matter on a remove, although those leftovers should get cleared out eventually. To check:

Code: Select all

apt list --installed "linux-image-*"
ls /boot

Pretty sure you hit the proverbial nail on the head there.
