If you'll run "df -h", you'll see which partition[s] is/are full. You'll
have to clean some space off that partition.

Likely, you can run "aptitude autoclean" to get rid of old .debs that
are not longer needed, which could free up a lot of space. Run "df -h"
before and after this command to see the difference in free space it made.
