Apport Disk Full Error Using apt-get

If you’re a Ubuntu user who finds themselves with an ugly message like this one day when running a apt-get update,

No apport report written because the error message indicates a disk full error

you may have thought you’ve run out of disk space and run the command,

df -h

but then found you had plenty of space free. Well maybe you do have plenty of bytes free but what about inodes? They’re effectively a limitation of the number of files you can have in a filesystem.
