Did you try deleting some unwanted packages to create some space, then? – i08in Dec 6 '13 at 4:03

Check your free disk space with df in a terminal or terminal emulator. If your disk Use% is full (above 90-95%) then you need to remove some packages or upgrade to a bigger hard drive.

I solved the trouble, it was cause the Inodes was on 100% used on the root. I deleted the old Linux kernels, this reduced it to 30% so now all work again. – user222615 Dec 6 '13 at 8:10
