I'm having hard times for a couple of weeks with this one... I'm using Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS as a dev web server, it's running on virtualbox (win7) and these "no free space" available are coming again and again. I tried to remove every temp files, got it working for a few hours, then the same issue again (no surprise here). I googled it and tried to extend my disk size. I managed to extend it, allocate the new free space to my partition with gparted live cd (I'm running ubuntu in terminal mode, no startx installed) I thought I walked through this, it worked well for a few days, then no free space again... I doubled the disk size, so I'm kind of lost here...
IMO, my disk should have enough free space... I must have missed something obvious...
df -h gives me :
