I have a full disk from where the applications are. I want to install program updates. It shows disk full error. According to the instructions, I change the installation location in the cloud preferences. The installer still shows a disk full error. What can I do to make it work so that I can install the program on another drive?
You need a moderate amount of free space to download the installer, and for shared files. You can choose where the main program files go, but that's all. So, you need to free some space - 10 GB might be enough. But never run an SSD that full.
