Looks like the root partition (the very first line) is full. Run sudo apt-get clean for starters, that will remove the APT cache. (downloaded packages)

Besides that you probably have quite a few kernels, you only need 1. They're 150 megs a pop. They're named linux-image-version number.

If this is a fresh install you might consider reinstalling with a larger root...

I've done a fresh installation without using the automatic way but choosing
the dimensions of the swap, / and /home partitions myself and now the system
is faster but not enough for such a laptop especially using LXDE, so maybe I
could have an Intel wifi card...

I've not choosen the dimension of the different partitions, i've used the automatic installation, i've done anything, why the root partition is so tiny?

This is a good question. I believe the reason might be hard disk sizes have grown rapidly and the installer defaults have not followed yet.

Look if your hard drive isn’t failing.
To diagnostic your hard driver install "smarmontools" and "gsmartcontrol" then do a extended self test and finally post the SMART report.
I've looked at the specs of the laptop and you could install trisquel normally you normally don't have to use trisquel mini.

In the current case, 'df' shows that the root partition is full and lembas' instructions should be followed. That said, it does not hurt to check the HDD's health status! But there is no reason to believe the disk is failing.

Sorry didn't read that correctly.
I have a really bad experience with hard drives that why instead of saying (have you tried turning it off and on again) I often say did you look that hard drives health status.
(There is no reason that the hdd is failing) well for what I know the hard drives shipped in laptops (and pre build pc case) are not 100% quality fresh materiel so a hard drives who have already a more than 5 years (depending on how it was handled, generally there badly handled) of life, I don't trust it except for stock pile of downloaded videos.

Do you have an intel wifi card in the box? Those are known to cause such trouble. https://trisquel.info/en/issues/15897

You can use the following command to find outlspci

No Intel Wifi chipset has a free firmware. One sure way to get Wifi with Linux-libre (hence Trisquel) is to buy a card/dongle at either http://libre.thinkpenguin.com or http://tehnoetic.com

Yes you are right! It's the wifi card!!! I've typed Ctrl + Alt + F1 and the screen prints an infinite list of "could not load free firmware"!!!

I don't need wifi at the moment, however thank you for the information, sure it will be very useful to me in the future :D

But how can I disable this loop that is slowing my laptop?

I would first try to use a later version of the kernel: https://trisquel.info/en/wiki/update-linux-libre-kernel

One sure fire way is to yank out that useless card.

I've launched the software updater from the preferences and maybe it has updated the kernel, because now the execution of the system is fluid!!!

However just for take the bull by the horns I've installed gsmartcontrol and performed an extended self test, you can read the attached file (i haven't the competence) but the program has said that the hard drive is in health :)

I haven't been able to install smarmontools, typing sudo apt-get install smarmontools gives me no entry of this package, I would like to try even that one just for learning, could you help me even in this? :D

The correct package name is smartmontools but it's a dependency of gsmartcontrol so you already have it installed.

For more info, read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S.M.A.R.T.
