Free diskspace

Asked by GUI_Junkie on 2015-12-03

I have tried to upgrade Ubuntu 15.04 to 15.10 on a Virtual Machine. After a number of minutes, the upgrader reported that free space on the harddrive was lacking.

It should be trivial to check that, just after the user authorization request.

What is the output of:

df -h; uname -a; lsb_release -a; dpkg -l | grep linux-image

Thanks

Hi!

I forgot to mention that I added space to the Virtual Machine, so I'm
upgrading at this moment.

The output shows 15.10 already.
