    Question Not Enough Space /Archives/

    Hi,
    it seems i run always in the same problem :

    My situation :
    (Starting from a fresh Kali Linux installation)
    I am running kalinux on the lastest Oracle VirtualBox Manager (Pic 1 with Spec) on Asus UX305CA running Windows 10.

    Everytime I try to update/upgrade my system (apt update/ apt upgrade) I get the problem :
    E : You don't have enough free space in /var/cache/apt/archives/. (Pic 2 )

    The Resolution :

    I have increase the size of my virtualBox from 15gb to 40 gb.
    I have tryed to sudo apt-get clean and auto-remove (even if i know that sudo dont mean anything for Kali anyway)
    I have followed everything from : http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/...t-archives
    But if i type :

    Code:
    apt-config dump | grep Periodic

    Nothing happend. If, however i just type apt-config dump, i see the list but nowhere maxsize.

    Conclusion :
    So I am stuck with a machine that i cannot upgrade for some reason. (It work for the msfconsole but not with the viel)

    So if anyone can help, I would really be thankfull.

    Thank You

    Have you checked the contents of /var/cache/apt/archives? You may need to manually delete some files in there

    Anything in there when you list the contents of the directory?

    Sorry, it was the easiest way to add the picture

    That pic is taken after a apt-get clean I have tried to upgrade apt and apt-utils manually but they are uptodate !

    Really don't know what to do !

    Re-installing Kali Linux with a graphical installation did the trick ! The problem is close
