I am unable to install updates. Get an error message saying "not enough free disk space" when there is plenty of disk space in the PC. I could send the screen shot if an e-mail address is provided.

I run 13.04

Please help. Jay

Please upload your screenshots to an image hoster like imgur and embed them in your question. The output of df -h would be helpful too. –  David Foerster Sep 25 '13 at 8:48
A possibility is lack of space for a kernel update, which requires a good deal of extra disk space. But without the outputs it's hard to tell; please post the outputs of df -h and apt-get upgrade. –  Luís de Sousa Sep 25 '13 at 11:16
sudo apt-get install bleachbit –  Shaharil Ahmad Sep 26 '13 at 5:12
