Package Center : The available disk space of this system is insufficient


I'm currently running DSM 6.2-23739 (Xpenology on Gen8 Microserver) and when I try and install a package via Packer Center I get the following error "The available disk space of this system is insufficient". As you can see from my screen shot their is 2.71TB of disc space remaining?


Thanks in advance

It because /dev/md0 is full:

admin@Filmstation:/$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/md0 2.3G 2.3G 0 100% /
none 7.9G 0 7.9G 0% /dev
/tmp 7.9G 348K 7.9G 1% /tmp
/run 7.9G 3.7M 7.9G 1% /run
/dev/shm 7.9G 16K 7.9G 1% /dev/shm
none 4.0K 0 4.0K 0% /sys/fs/cgroup
cgmfs 100K 0 100K 0% /run/cgmanager/fs
/dev/md2 21T 19T 2.8T 88% /volume1

I'm just not sure what that directly does or how to empty it!
/dev/md0 is a small partition on all disk drives that is configured as RAID1 using the mdadm tool . It is used for booting and storing the DSM application. This allows any drive failure that requires a hot-swap replacement. So I would guess that something has completely saturated your main DSM partition and it makes sense that you are getting this error.

Any apps installed that you can remove to make room?

Not realy. I'd walk thru the filesytem with du -hxd1 --exclude=/volume? / (which is the short for
du --human-readable --one-file-system --max-depth=1 --exclude=/volume? /) and follow the follders with unexpected or huge size.
admin@Filmstation:/tmp$ sudo du -hxd1 --exclude=/volume1
