Cloud 9 - git and no space left on device



I'm receiving this error:

Failed to install dependencies for Git panel We can’t install required dependencies because of how your AWS Cloud9 environment is currently configured. Error: No space left on device. Please make sure you have at least 200MB of free disk space.

but when I check (df -h):

Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
udev            2.0G     0  2.0G   0% /dev
tmpfs           395M  928K  394M   1% /run
/dev/vda1        25G   21G  4.0G  84% /

/dev/loop1      106M  106M     0 100% /snap/core/16574
tmpfs           395M     0  395M   0% /run/user/0

Similarly, when I enter a command and then press tab to have it auto finished I see something similar to this:

ls tmpbash: cannot create temp file for here-document: No space left on device bash: cannot create temp file for here-document: No space left on device

Any help very much appreciated!

Thank you,

So this appears to be an inode issue.

root@pdfservice:~# df -i Filesystem Inodes IUsed IFree IUse% Mounted on udev 501598 381 501217 1% /dev tmpfs 504896 581 504315 1% /run /dev/vda1 3225600 3225472 128 100% /

I've increased the # of inodes by deleting files and that seems to have fixed it.

Thanks for your help.
