Symptom

You need more disk space.

Cause

You can simple remove unnecessary files from your Disk to free up space.

Solution

If you are running short of disk space, open a terminal and try "sudo apt-get autoremove" and then "sudo apt-get clean". The first command removes any unused dependencies from the system and the second removes all cached package files. On a well-used system that has been updated a couple of times, this could free-up as much as a gigabyte of space using these commands.
