I am using debian 9.When ever i am trying to install any application debian 9 is showing error as


root@debian:/home/midhun#  apt install torbrowser-launcher -t stretch is showing error as E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

http://paste.debian.net/1047681/

so tried apt --fix-broken install

http://paste.debian.net/1047682/

which is giving me errors such as dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/perl-base_5.24.1-3+deb9u4_i386.deb (--unpack):

From the log:

58: cannot copy extracted data for
'./usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/perl-base/lib.pm' to
'/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/perl-base/lib.pm.dpkg-new': failed to write
(No space left on device)

Usually happens when you don't have enough space left on the disk, try executing

df

and check for the space usage.

Cheers,

thanks danjay for answering my question.That issue was solved.but the main problem with my debian is it is generating logs of huge volume and i am running out of space often as allocated space for /var/logs become 100%. So every time i have to manually delete the /var/logs to make my system function normally.Any suggestion to fix this issue.
