hi,

Error writing to file - write (28: No space left on device)
here's the error.

you don't have enough space left on your disk, you'll need to clean up some files beforehand.

you can see the disk usage with df -h command.

to see which directories are taking the most space:
Code:
cd /
du -shx * 2>/dev/null

should give you an overview of the folder sizes.

hope this helps!

Also, do you know if proxmox misbehaves once storage is full? I've had some issues with it recently.

Check whats using 4.2GB in your /usr folder and 50GB in your /var folder. You can lso delete some old logs in /var/log (ending with ".1", ".2", or ".gz").

yes, if space is full you can expect weird behavior (this is true for most operating systems)

When I installed the OS it made an LVM. One part of the LVM is good on space local-lvm (100.41 GB of 157.97 GB). This is where VM images are stored.

local is at 55.84 GB of 60.77 GB. I'm not sure how else to free up space from this partition, I already deleted all the backups and ISOs from it.

it appears /lib/modules is taking up a gigabyte. this is what it contains.
/lib/modules$ ls
5.13.19-2-pve 5.13.19-6-pve 5.15.30-2-pve 5.15.35-1-pve 5.4.143-1-pve 5.4.73-1-pve

anything I can delete from this?

Something is using way to much space in your /var folder. You should check /var/tmp is there are any failed ISO upload remains and so on. My PVE installation for example never exceeded 14GB.

find /var -type f -exec du -Sh {} + | sort -rh | head -n 20 should show you the 20 biggest files in "/var".
Did you already checked the log folder?

I cleared the log folder, now I have 29GB free, that must have been what was taking up all my space

You then should also check what messages are spamming your log files. So that you can fix the problems that cause all the log messages. So that you don't run out of space again and your SSD will wear less.

This is super weird. I rebooted my system and now the storage used has gone down even more. However, my proxmox web UI won't load at all.1652110461884.png1652110430762.png

Did you have finished the broken Upgrade already?

If not, try it with apt --fix-broken install
