can someone help me?

  • Have you tried running apt autoremove to see if you have any unused packages taking up space? – andrybak Mar 22 '18 at 7:13
  • Is it possible that the disk space is filled doing first stages of upgrade, it fails, and then cleans up the used space? Doesn't Ubuntu show the disk space needed for the upgrade in the UI? – andrybak Mar 22 '18 at 7:16
  • @andrybak yes I tried autoremove and clean and autoclean, no success after those. And to answer your second question, no I did not see anything mentioning the space needed for update ... – arianhf Mar 22 '18 at 8:09
