Bug#127942: apt: Apt install packages partly in out-of-disk space situation, rendering system unusefull
Justification: causes non-serious data loss
Today i did a "apt-get dist-upgrade" unaware that my partition was reaching 100% diskuse.
Apt did not mind in tried to install many packages among which updated KDE packages.
My system still boots, but most icons are missing. (And this is just the visual part).
I have not tested other packages that were upgraded (because i do not know how to check
which packages were upgraded.) But it seems likelt that more files were lost while trying to write them
to a disk with no space left. Apt should have aborted when noticing that there was no space
