You can check how full your filesystem is after you've cleared the APT cache and removed any orphans by running:
Code: Select all
df -h

EDIT: Ninja'd...

Visit http://speedof.me/ and check your download speed, then run `apt-get update` and check the download speed given by APT.

If APT is getting much slower download speeds I think you have to ask your ISP or check your router settings for anything to do with it's firewall.

OK so the problem persists. I cleared the cache but I'm still stuck.

Going back to a prior post from DilbertsLeftNut, /var/ is indeed full. So it looks like I need to expand /var, the problem is I don't know how to do this saftley.

Of course there are lots of articles out there but I'm not sure what to follow.

Post the output requested by @sunrat plz.

Rather than just expand /var you should instead try to find out why it is full otherwise you will soon run into the same problem.

How big is /var now?

I've recently run `aptitude clean` on my Debian box & /var occupies ~0.5GiB; on my Arch box I haven't cleared the cache in a while and it's still only ~1.5GiB

Did you try to measure your download speeds as I suggested?

You claim you have a fast connection but APT says 4B/s -- that would certainly explain the "404" messages.

du -sh /var/*
too.
and so forth. Perhaps grep for M or G, to only get the big ones.
Then delete what can be deleted. *tar.gz in /var/log for sure. Round the lines of
find /var/log -name '*tar.gz* | xargs rm
(not sure, and there are find arguments to do it more smart. Don't copy and paste).

For what it's worth:
gentoo-laptop log # du -sh /var
703M /var
Shit knows what you got there. 2.8 Gigs sound like a lot.

So why is APT only reporting 4bytes a second if your browser is getting almost 4MiB a second?

Are you sure you ran `apt-get clean`?

What is the output of:
Code: Select all
ls /var/cache/apt/archives/

Def did run apt-get clean, ran it again just in case..I am confused as you in regards the internet speed.

So you need to look at /var/lib and find out what is filling up your partition.

I really don't have a clue why APT is so slow but it seems likely that the 404's are due to your signal dropping out.

At your own risk you could have a look at something like apt-fast -- this manages APT downloads from multiple sources, a bit like a torrent download:
http://xmodulo.com/speed-slow-apt-get-i ... buntu.html
However, it looks to be designed for Ubuntu -- make sure you do not use the PPA method to install it.

I am shooting in the dark. I would try:
deborphan
and or
deborphan --guess-all
then
deborphan | xargs apt-get remove --purge -y

aptitude purge ~c

apt-get autoremove

After that i would check /var/lib again (my main hope is aptitude purge ~c)
Doing ls -ahl /var/lib/* too, and so forth, until you found it, won't hurt.
Again: I never ran into something like this. It seems weird, as if you would have done something ... well: odd. Hence none of that is a "solution". It is a proposal to go on with troubleshooting, the problem lays somewhere else ("someone" has done something)

Take care with deborphan and mainly deborphan --guess all. It might remove stuff you don't want removed (you can install it again, but still).

I think i would reinstall the OS, btw. This looks like a mess. If you got the time and consider it fun, then go on.

Just another shot in the dark...
Unless you have a very specific reason for the way it is, I would consider rethinking the partitioning scheme where /var is concerned.

Your disk is full. Check with "df -h" (post here if needed). Fix that and then start again. You might have a corrupted package database though (dpkg is not known for its reliability).

Edit: this is what happens when you leave a tab open for a long time. Sorry for redundant reply.

He posted the output of dh -h already here:
viewtopic.php?f=30&t=119779&start=30#p565427
it revealed that /var/lib is filling /var (well, the further investigation via du -sh), and that is what we were discussing before your post.

To All,

I want to thank everyone so much for their effort for helping me to solve this issue! Turns out as best I can tell /var/lib/plexmediaserver was taking up a butt load of space, 1.1 Gb to be exact.

For those unfamilar with Plex, it's a media server software. Basically what appeared to be happening is Plex was placing all info (metadata, logs etc.) into /var/lib/plexmediaserver. So after a bit of research I found that you can set where Plex places this information in the config file /etc/default/plexmediaserver. I changed the location to a directory in one of my logical volumes and restarted the service. I then rm -r the old directory /var/lib/plexmediaserver.

After this I ran apt-get install rsync and received some promising info,

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install rsync
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  rsync
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 369 kB of archives.
After this operation, 653 kB of additional disk space will be used.
WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated!
  rsync
Install these packages without verification [y/N]?


Now the question is, what is this message about authentication about?
