can't upgrade - no space left on device

Hi, I cannot upgrade my atomic instance, getting "error: No space left on device". Now sadly I'm still a Linux noob in general and with LVM especially so I have no idea how to fix this. I DO know however that I have still space left somewhere on that disk.
Normally I would just mount /dev/sda2 on / but I suppose that /dev/sda2 is being used by atomic for the docker images. (Also I'm getting 'mount: unknown filesystem type 'LVM2_member'')

df output

-bash-4.2# df
Filesystem           1K-blocks    Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/cah-root   3135488 3135448        40 100% /

tmpfs                   386544       0    386544   0% /run/user/0

/dev/sda2 does not even show up here, shouldn't it do that?

Can you please help me?

I just run into the same issue. Here is the way how I fixed it:

step1: Verify that you have enough space in the volume group (VFree):

-bash-4.2# vgs
VG     #PV #LV #SN Attr   VSize VFree
cah   1   3   0 wz--n- 9.70g 3.41g

step2: increase the size of the logical volume of root with 1G:

-bash-4.2# lvextend -L+1G /dev/cah/root 
  Size of logical volume cah/root changed from 3.00 GiB (768 extents) to 4.00 GiB (1024 extents).
  Logical volume root successfully resized.

step3: grow the root filesystem:

-bash-4.2#  xfs_growfs /
meta-data=/dev/mapper/rhelah-root isize=256    agcount=4, agsize=196608 blks
         =                       sectsz=512   attr=2, projid32bit=1
         =                       crc=0        finobt=0
data     =                       bsize=4096   blocks=786432, imaxpct=25
         =                       sunit=0      swidth=0 blks
naming   =version 2              bsize=4096   ascii-ci=0 ftype=0
log      =internal               bsize=4096   blocks=2560, version=2
         =                       sectsz=512   sunit=0 blks, lazy-count=1
realtime =none                   extsz=4096   blocks=0, rtextents=0
data blocks changed from 786432 to 1048576
-bash-4.2# df -hl
Filesystem               Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/rhelah-root  4.0G  3.0G  1.1G  75% /
devtmpfs                 982M     0  982M   0% /dev
tmpfs                   1001M     0 1001M   0% /dev/shm
tmpfs                   1001M  420K 1001M   1% /run
tmpfs                   1001M     0 1001M   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
/dev/vda1                297M  111M  187M  38% /boot
tmpfs                    201M     0  201M   0% /run/user/0

I hope this helps, Balazs

The problem is in the default installation of Atomic. It creates a 3GB logical volume (LV) for the system, but doesn't configure other LVs for the "data"/containers. After installation, there should still be space left on the volume group. Create a new LV and set it as storage for your containers.
