[SOLVED] flatpak update says "min-free-space-size 500MB would be exceeded"

Hey all.

Today’s routine “Software updates” broke for me. I’m only remotely familiar with Flatpak; please help figure this out.

The failure is this simple:

$ flatpak update
Looking for updates...

I do have plenty of space available; this is not your plain ENOSPC.

What’s wrong & how to fix it?

Damn. I was wrong. Indeed a plain ENOSPC; I just missed the root mount in pydf output.

After cleaning up enough space, the error disappeared.
