    Can someone advise how I can free up space in my rootfs, as I need to update some software in an e2 linux box.

    It would really help if you posted in CODE tags to make the df output readable. Plus, using df -hT makes more understandable output.
    I went to the trouble of deciphering your encrypted posting, and looks like the host has very small root partition and that partition is full. You do not bother to mention what OS is running on that host, so exact advice is not possible.
    Maybe check if there are two versions of kernel installed, the latest installed and the previous version. Try removing the previous version, that should free up lots of disk space.
    On the other hand the disk partition layout makes me suspect this is some VPS on some service, so maybe the kernel is not used in the usual way as in a Linux hardware box.
    I would read the documentation of that system to understand why the root partition is so small and how it is supposed to be prevented from filling up.

    Do you need the space at /media/hdd? You might be able to use that elsewhere, eg. maybe for /var.
