Note: you may need to restart the kernel to use updated packages.

Are you sure you have adequate space?

Please run df -h and post that so we can see the actual space available.

i have updated

Try df -i you could be out of inodes.

btrfs gives 0 for Inodes, IUsed, and IFree. Try sudo btrfs filesystem usage /.

There’s more, but you see my point, it does report inodes from btrfs as well

It appears this is your root file system ( / ) and it is full.

Hi @ddkroyal001 ,
I see your /boot/efi mount point is listed as a btrfs files system and this appears to be the ESP which must be formatted as such, not btrfs.

is this action can corrupt the system… i mean is it risky?

Well now that you ask, since you also have a BIOS grub partition, I’m a bit concerned about why the two are there. It should be one or the other in grub land as far as booting up goes. Plus the 1.0 Mb size is too small for anything to be written. Have you upgraded hardware (such as cpu or mobo) in the interim?

no , when i was installing the fedora 38 …system told me to do so…to make 1MB partition

Possibly you have an efi system but chose the legacy bios installer. It should recommend 100Mb, not 1 Mb, for that partition in any case I think that is the norm. But to the point, if your system is newer it likely is EFI/UEFI in which case what you boot with the installer media is important. You’ll have to use your BIOS’s boot menu to make sure and select the UEFI installer of :fedora: in order to get the install going into the right (boot specific) location. This makes no difference to where :fedora: itself is installed just where the boot loader is written.

It is OK for the BIOS Boot Partition to be only 1 MB on a GPT partitioned disk, it is also unformatted. Grub then installs its BIOS bootcode there to boot an OS in compatibility mode for legacy BIOS boot on an otherwise UEFI/GPT system, presuming the UEFI supports this.

The EFI System Partition, which should be formatted with a vfat partition, is the one that needs to be at least 100 MB, and up to 1 GB if configured to boot multiple different operating systems using UEFI instead of legacy BIOS.

See this page for details.

GNU GRUB Manual 2.06: BIOS installation

If you monitor your file systems during the install you may see where the space is filled up. Two possible causes:

  • pip uses tmpfiles and your /tmp ramdisk fills up.
  • Your btrfs needs balancing so that free space can be allocated (see Jeff’s hint).
