i.e. /home is already on a separate partition.

Several people have now suggested saving space in a bits of the
filesystem that Stephen has on dedicated partitions, so this is not

This partitioning scheme seems really odd and unwieldy. So much
wasted space on partitions that will never need anything like what
they have been assigned. This seems like a great example of how not
to partition a system - anyone thinking of using this many
partitions really should consider LVM in future.

Anyway, Stephen, you need to focus on finding useless things in / and
either removing them or moving them elsewhere. If it's just data
then it looks like somewhere under /home would be a good choice as
it has 292G available.

Ask before deleting anything you don't fully understand.
