Ubuntu update error message


I tried updating to the latest version of Ubuntu. Did my software update, then upgrade to latest version. While it was installing, I keep getting the following error message: "Backup location is too small. Try using one with more space." Does this mean my computer is too old and not enough space to upgrade or can this be fixed?

I Guess you dont have enough space to install new update.

#df -h -Check your disk space

Look after the thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1993467
