How did you attempt to install it please?

Pedro Curto (pmcurto) said : #2

I installed it from the software centre. It blocked. Cheers!

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #3

Please provide the output of the following terminal commands:

uname -a
lsb_release -a
dpkg --audit
apt-cache policy celestia

Beaten to it. Was going to request the same output :-)

Sorry, itś in Portuguese. It reads that the device doesnt have free room for the data. I do have plenty of room in my hard disk, though.

Please execute the following terminal commands

mount
df -h
df -i
LANG=C sudo apt-get install -f

and copy/paste the output as done before.

It doesn't synchronize and it doesn't read the packages. My system is unstable.

Pedro Curto (pmcurto) said : #10

Also, I Can't copy any files to my Personal Archive... I don't understand how come I don't have any disk space available.

Thanks for the help provided...
Pedro

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #11

Is this an installation of Ubuntu inside Windows with help of wubi?

In that case you have to use wubi_resize or similar techniques to increase the space that has been provided to Ubuntu, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ResizeandDuplicateWubiDisk

In any case you can also perform cleanup activities to reduce disk usage, e.g. by removing obsolete Ubuntu packages.

Pedro Curto (pmcurto) said : #12

No, it's not a wubi installation inside windows. I cannot launch the software updater either. I' m stuck.

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #13

If it is not a wubi installation, what is it then? It is definitely not a standard Ubuntu installation.
Is this some kind of dual boot system, do you have the possibility to select between Ubuntu an another operating system at boot time?
If yes, what is the headline of the first selection screen? Is it "Grub..." or "Windows Boot..." like this https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=boot-screen.jpg ?

Your output shows
Sist.fichs Tama Ocup Livre Uso% Montado em
/dev/loop0 17G 17G 3,4M 100% /
That means that your Ubuntu system is installed on a 17GiB container file which is amost full.

Please provide the output of the following terminal commands to check some more details:

sudo fdisk -l
cat /etc/fstab
ls -l /host
ls -l /host/ubuntu

Pedro Curto (pmcurto) said : #14

Hello! Yes, it's a dual-boot system paralel to windows xp. Can I expand my root system for Ybubtu? I deleted some files and I was able to solve the problem temporarily, but I need more working space for Ubuntu on my 500 Gbytes disk. Thank you for your patience!

Here is the result you requested:

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #15

Even without the output of "ls -l /host" and "ls -l /host/ubuntu" I am sure that this is a wubi installation. (The commands did not work for you, because you missed a space character between "-l" and "/host".)

There are instructions on how to expand the size of the container file of a wubi installation in
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ResizeandDuplicateWubiDisk (will create a larger copy and preserve the current file as backup) and
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ResizeWubiDisk (two ways, one with help of a live CD, and the other one by just expanding the container file - make sure to care for a backup of your important files yourself).

Pedro Curto (pmcurto) said : #16

Right. You're the expert! I'll try reading the instructions to expand the disk space for Ubuntu. Cheers! Pedro

Just so you know, Wubi is very dead. It has not has a single update since April 2012. It is no longer maintained and i don't suggest anyone use it. It was also a rubbish solution when it was active
