[leapp] At least X MB more space needed on the </XXX> filesystem

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • While trying to upgrade to RHEL 8.x with leapp, the following error message is printed:

    Error Summary
    Disk Requirements:
       At least 1044MB more space needed on the / filesystem.

    Enlarging the root filesystem didn't fix the issue.
    The file system requiring more space can be different that / above.

  • leapp-upgrade.log file shows the following message

    [ERROR] Actor: target_userspace_creator Message: Unable to install RHEL 8 userspace packages.
