My root partition is using 21GB, as you can see below.

sudo du -md1 / | sort -n, I get the following:

Digging up a bit further with
sudo du -md1 /usr | sort -n, I get the following:
Does this really mean that the main issue is the program libraries? It looks odd to me because I haven’t even installed that many programs; I used more programs on other distros (including Arch) and the size of the root partition never exceeded 10-12GB. Could you tell me if there is something else that may actually be causing this?
If there is any other piece of information that could be of use to you, please let me know. Thank you for your time.
