No idea, since you're not providing ANY useful details. Short answer: quit some running programs or buy more memory.

Where are you getting this message? When? What are you running to get it? What kind of hardware and what specs does it have? Version of Ubuntu you have now, and what are you trying to upgrade to?

I think the problem here is that they're use "memory" when they mean "storage".

I'm guessing you really did not partition enough storage for Linux. It's going to be tricky and require the use of an external hard drive. I've worked around this in the past and it is not fun. You're better off going back and giving Ubuntu a bigger partition from the start.
