Not able to upgrade.


Trying to upgrade I get the following message "The upgrade needs a total of 913 M free space on disk '/'. Please free at least an additional 525 M of disk space on '/'. Empty your trash and remove temporary packages of former installations using 'sudo apt-get clean". I went to the terminal and entered sudo apt-get clean. I have used Gparted to re-size each of of the partitions on the Linux side of my machine but I still get the message. What should I do?

Execute this command,

Code:
df -h
That will tell you the free disk space on your mounted devices. You should then make an effort to clean up the disk that doesn't have enough space. You could use,

Code:
du -shc *
as you traverse directory paths to show you where the space hogs are.

if you have less than 1 gig of drive space
remove unneeded files
or
reinstall and use bigger partitions
