    No space in filesystem for upgrade

    Haven't come across this previously so am asking for some help please

    wanted to upgrade from 25 to 26 but after entering 'sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=26'

    I got this message 'At least 2970MB more space needed on the / filesystem.'

    Thanks

    You could try this:
    Code:
    sudo journalctl --vacuum-size 100M
    Does this free up more space?
    Also check in /var/cache/PackageKit for older distribution cached packages and remove them.

    You removed all folders/files from /var/cache/PackageKit? That's usually the biggest issue- Software will download all of it separate from dnf and keep it all.

    Question, how big is your / partition ?
    I usually give it 50GB.
