One quick additional comment -- you may want to ssh in to the instance and remove any large upload files that were created in /tmp by galaxy, or other things might also start failing.

Hey Francis,

There's a bug in the current release of cloudman that causes files fetched by galaxy (this doesn't affect direct http or ftp upload) to use the root volume as temporary storage, which has very little space.  This is fixed in the next release scheduled to coincide with the galaxy-dist release.    Until that's available, I'd recommend using one of the other upload options.  If this isn't possible, let me know and I'll try to figure out another workaround.  Sorry for the trouble!

I'm on cloudman, trying to upload files, and I'm getting this error message:

"No space left on device" transferring a 1 GB file to my instance, but the 
cloudman console says I have more than 5 GB left?

Is this a bad error message?

Is there some other file you want to see?
