I bought an Intel Nuc with a 4 GB ram and 500 GB hard disk. I am trying to install ubuntu on it following this tutorial:


When I get to step 4.4), to run

xzcat /media/ubuntu//ubuntu-core-16-amd64.img.xz | sudo dd of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=32M status=progress; sync

I get the following message

error writing 'dev/mmcblk0 no spce left on device.

Do you know how could this happen and what should I do to solve it?

    You should add the output of sudo parted -l to the question. I doubt a 500GB HDD is /dev/mmcblk0, so you night need to adjust according to your particular setup. – mikewhatever May 12 '18 at 10:03

    FYI - that tutorial is NOT for installing normal Ubuntu Desktop, it's for installing Snappy Ubuntu Core – Android Dev May 12 '18 at 11:30
