Cant update (cant mount rootfs)

i havent update for about 5 months ,and now i got 1.4gb to update after downloading packages when it check for free space then give error
warning: could not get file information for usr/lib/lxc/rootfs/README error: Partition /usr/lib/lxc/rootfs is mounted read only error: not enough free disk space error: failed to commit transaction (not enough free disk space) Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
how do i fix this error any help will help me alot.
when i checked for free space it shows that i have 44% used and 56% left i have 4.19 kernel fish as default shell .

:+1: Welcome to Manjaro! :+1:

  1. Please read this:
    How to provide good information
    and post some more information so we can see what’s really going on. Now we know the symptom of the disease, but we need some more probing to know where the origin lies…

  2. An inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width would be the minimum required information… (Personally Identifiable Information like serial numbers and MAC addresses will be filtered out by the above command)
    Also, please copy-paste that output in-between 3 backticks ``` at the beginning and end of the code/text.


P.S. If you enter a bit more details in your profile, we can also see which Desktop Environment you’re using, which CPU/GPU or Kernel, … you have without typing it every time

If you haven’t updated in 5 months, I recommend just doing a reinstall because you’d probably break your system trying to update now… It has already happened multiple times on this forum. Or we can try to fix this issue, but then you’ll have to fix the rest of the issues post update.

If you don’t want to update often, I don’t recommend you to stick with a rolling release.

Regarding free space, can you provide the output of df -h?

Please use ``` before and after the output.

FYI: inxi output does contain this info as well:
