I've got an Ubuntu Server 16.04 VM running in VirtualBox 5.0, with a 20GB drive attached (originally created as a 10GB in a VM called "box-template", then extended after the VM was cloned and renamed).
Today, when I tried using the terminal autocomplete, I got a message stating
-bash: cannot create temp file for here-document: No space left on device. When I run
df -i, I see the following output:
media@box-library:~$ df -i Filesystem Inodes IUsed IFree IUse% Mounted on udev 251035 475 250560 1% /dev tmpfs 256039 609 255430 1% /run /dev/mapper/box--template--vg-root 491520 491520 0 100% / tmpfs 256039 2 256037 1% /dev/shm tmpfs 256039 3 256036 1% /run/lock tmpfs 256039 16 256023 1% /sys/fs/cgroup /dev/sda1 124928 313 124615 1% /boot //10.0.0.5/media2 183148544 23791 183124753 1% /media/media2 //10.0.0.5/media1 183148544 7496 183141048 1% /media/media1 tmpfs 256039 4 256035 1% /run/user/1000
At this point, I discovered this answer which helped me to slightly better understand what this particular partition actually is. I tried looking through the HOWTO for LVM, but unfortunately my limited knowledge of linux means that I don't even know where to start in that document...
When I start up my VM booting from a GParted live CD, my "19.52 GiB"
box-template-vg partition still shows "10.03 Gib" free.
Am I missing something important here? Or did I do something wrong when I cloned the VM and resized the drive?

Edit 2: Including output of
Just a quick side note: I actually cloned the "template" VM twice, but the other VM does not need more drive space at the moment. The
df -i command on that one shows my 35% for the "IUse%" column, so in future if/when I need to resize the virtual drive on that machine, is there any thing special I need to keep in mind to prevent this issue?
