Updates impossible - root partition 100% full

Hello and congratulations for the created this system ! I install Mabox two days a back and that’s good. But since yesteday, the updates is impossible and I see this message: Not space available on the device. I refresh the list of mirrors but the problem is always here.

I use a E machine 1200 with 9 GO of Swap, 9 GO of /

On the updates, I see a box for select glfw-Wayland or glfw-x11, what I must do choice, please ?!

Thanks for your help ! Guillaume

Hello @Guillaume,
If you do not have space left on disk then updates will be not possible.
Please check with command:

df -kh

When asked about glfw choose glfw-x11.

What are your PC parameters: RAM, disk size?
9GB of swap seems way to much.

Hello, @napcok

I’am 967 MB and one disk of 1000 GO.
9 GO is… Very little ?!

Sorry, this is the result of the command line:

Your root partition is full, so update is impossible.
I would suggest reinstalling and allocating more GB to the root partition / - at least 20 GB or more - depending on how many additional programs you plan to install.
If you only have 1 GB of RAM, 2 GB of swap is enough.

i suspected that was it, i try to resize the root to increase its size with gparted but i can’t. In fact, I forget to take the ram in count and I think to install a news. Thanks for your help.

I installed mabox on Saturday (2 days ago) on a single btrfs partition of 250 gb. (btrfs snapshots take up a lot of space).

I’ve Manjaro OB for years and sometimes it was support and sometimes it wasn’t.

Mabox is a more finished project and I wish I had known about it earlier.
