APT check that there is enough space to download the archive files and
presents you with a value that indicates how much more space you will
need. Unfortunately since systems can have strange ways of mounting things
I can't actually check that value, it is up to you to be sure that you
have xxx meg free on the relevent partitions - but it does say before hand
how much is needed.
