I successfully installed Ubuntu 12.04.

Then, at the moment I need to install the updates, I get this message:

NOT ENOUGH FREE DISK SPACE

THE UPGRADE NEEDS A TOTAL OF 449M FREE SPACE ON DISK '/'.

PLEASE FREE AT LEAST ADDITIONAL 425M OF DISK SPACE ON '/'.

EMPTY YOUR TRASH AND REMOVE TEMPORARY PACKAGES OF FORMER INSTALLATIONS USING 'SUDO APT-GET CLEAN'.

I made sure I had plenty of space before installing Ubuntu.

The Trash is empty.

I try opening Terminal but when I click on it, nothing happens. I cannot input sudo apt-get clean.

Please help me. I want to upgrade to 12.10.

Please give more details: (1): How much space do you actually have left on the partition you installed ubuntu to? (2): Does Ctrl+Alt+T launch a Terminal instance? (3): Did you try installing 12.10, rather than 12.04 and upgrading afterwards? This just feels like an unnecessary layer on top. –  FEichinger Dec 21 '12 at 22:20
    
Are you within a Wubi installation? –  gertvdijk Dec 21 '12 at 22:31

May you paste the output of the df -h command please? (So that we can see the space left in your partition(s) and identify the problem(s)) –  Alex Dec 22 '12 at 0:16
    
What do you mean by "I cannot input sudo apt-get clean"? Can you not type it, does it not do anything when you do... what? –  Josh Dec 22 '12 at 4:24
