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

Hi,

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

Please try and run it via Docker. PC versions will give you some trouble and usually end up being broken as soon as Mono updates fail (and they tend to do that a lot).
 
This is the same for all packages, not just Radarr so I would like to fix as there are packages that I can't run Docker.

Would recommend that you then reinstall DSM. Your data volume will not be destroyed. Also, even though the message is clear, maybe there is some more info in the /var/log/messages file (accessible via SSH as root).
 
It because /dev/md0 is full:

[email protected]:/$ 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?
 
How is it even possible to install packages outside a volume?
Isnt't it always installing packages in selected default volume, that is selected in the Package Center?
 
md0 is the DSM install partition
md1 is swap file partition
md2 is your array volume.

I need to find a way to free up space on md0
 
I am aware of that and I can see that md0 needs to be freed up :)

Typicaly this happens if people start to create scripts that store things outside volume paths that are actualy backed by a md device.
 
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.

Nope, the . (as in current folder) is automacticly picked if no folder is provided (which you didn't).

Actualy, I would only have expected /usr (mine has 887M) and /var (mine has 313M) to be big in size.
Though, your problem is whatever occupies 1.1Gb in the /root folder. Mine uses 7.8M...
 
What should I say. Your original problem was that you can't instal packages due insufficient disk space. Now we know why the diskspace is insufficient.

It is up to you to find a solution for how to get rid of the file at that location :)
