When I'm trying to install Transmission using dietpi-software its erroring out with :

I was in one of NFS directories when runing the dietpi-software command if that is relevant?
This is on v7.7.3 of Dietpi on a RPi 4 Model B

Not sure where to look to free up space, any ideas?

According information provided, /var/log is full and require cleaning. Do you have persistent logging activated?

Restarted and log space is free, transmission installed just fine so you were right Joulinar that was it.
I had a permissions problem that was causing Sonarr problems moving a file from a download directory to another directory and it was retrying for days before i noticed the problem, i suspect it was constantly logging about that, maybe thats the root cause?

Probably, unfortunately we don't know which file was using the space as they are gone during reboot ;)
