Hi Francis, 
This is an issue with where Galaxy stores temporary files that are being uploaded via the web interface from an ftp site. Namely, it sticks them into /tmp rather than the path pointed to by TEMP. Cloud instances have limited space on the root image and thus the error. 

Until this is fixed, do you have an option to upload the file via an FTP client or from a non-ftp site?

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?
