Hi,

I found that a directory called
Code:
/var/cache/apt/archives#
is taking up over 1GB. It appears to contain mostly olf versions of application libraries, which may have become obsolete through upgrades. Can I safely delete them?
Please advise anyone.

Here an extract of the directory
Code:

Run "apt-get clean" to remove all old deb files safely.
