Well, you've survived over a year so you aren't doing so badly. The
main difference I can see is that your /var has increased from 19%
to 68%. Have you run that duse command on it recently? Here's my
wheezy /var but bear in mind that my /var/cache contains apt-cacher-ng
which is holding all the .deb files for both wheezy and jessie (and
backport and bits of sid).
So apart from that cache, I've got 447MB and you've got 1.8GB.
How's your /var/tmp? I think you're responsible for any cleaning
done there, unlike /tmp.
The only other thing I can suggest at present is running df while
those warnings are being generated.
