I used bleachbit on root and after deleting 100s of megabytes it still says there is no space left on device? What can I do to fix this? I believe this is a bug in Ubuntu and it remains unfixed! I deleted so many things and it still is not enough space even after emptying trash can! folder . REINSTALLATION OF UBUNTU IS NOT AN OPTION

  root@ubuntu:~# df -h

cd /
du -h --max-depth=1

That will give you an idea of where the space is used. Go for a deeper max-depth if you want, or cd down the tree and run it again to get more info etc. It is likely that by deleting hundreds of MB all you did was free up more space to be consumed by a log file or something else. Find the source of the space usage, fix any problems that are causing the space usage etc and remove files that are using the space. At a glance bleachbits seems to focus on clearing temp files, cookies etc. I don't know that it looks through the whole directory structure.
