Unable to install Anbox on BQ Aquaris M10 FHD

  • I've attempted to install Anbox following the steps at dailyuse/anbox but ran into an error 28: No space left on device:

    phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~$ sudo apt update

    Reading package lists... Error!                   
    W: No sandbox user '_apt' on the system, can not drop privileges
    E: Write error - write (28: No space left on device)
    E: IO Error saving source cache
    E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

    I also tested the troubleshooting instructions at the end of the page with the same results. I've got 3.5G left on the device so one would think there is sufficient space.
    I checked the amount of inodes which are being used with
    sudo df -i / and there were 45% used.
    How can I run apt update without getting the "No space left on device" error?
    Running 16.04 (OTA-13) on a BQ Aquaris M10 FHD.

  • I can confirm this issue.

    The problem seems to have to do with / and /dev/loop0 but I don't know how to advance from here. Any hint is appreciated.
    And thanks for all the time and effort you put into this!
