Upgrade 5.4.1 to 6.0

Getting this error on the upgrade, tried to purge connection events and whatnot...still not close to getting what I need available though.  Thoughts?

First have a look at this article for the most common causes:

Second, you can poke around in the filesystem and remove some of the obvious bits - logs from previous upgrades etc.

You can use the standard Linux commands to see where the filesystem is being used. For example, navigate up to the root directory and then run:

sudo du -hs * | sort -h

On an older host, the Snort Rule Update (SRU) files can add up quite a bit over time.

Be careful to take care not to delete anything you're unsure about.

Worked with TAC all morning, was the data correlator not pruning bug.  Got that fixed, but it still needs another 20GB to do the upgrade.  That is even after TAC & I went through and deleted all of the logs we can find.  I purged all of the data, I just really do not want to re-deploy the VM.  SFsnort is at 48G and ibdata1 is at 75G...still trying to figure something out.

Hi, Did you get it working for you? If Yes, How? I am having the same disk space issues after I tried to upgrade the firepower sensor from 6.2.0 to 6.2.2. Below are my logs:
