    Hi Reader,

    Well, here's my situation.

    I'm trying to update my debian system. I was told to resolve issues type "apt-get install -f" after running this command in the terminal, i recieved the following output error:

    XPS:/home/lindows# apt-get install -f

    Im a little confused on what to do next.

    In a terminal window, type df, and check the output for 100%, that will hopefully pinpoint the problem.

    What does df stand for? Also do you know of anyother useful commands?

    df shows you the usage of your hard disks/partitions. See
    man df
