What seems to have happened:
Your / was full, then Ubuntu created a new partition, in RAM memory, to use temporarily.
Now, this 100GB partition is not big enough for the job, either.
What we can do:

1) increase the size of this partition just to do the upgrade
2) actually delete enough files in the HD that this partition is no longer needed.

open a terminal and run
Code:
sudo umount /tmp
sudo mount -t tmpfs -o size=100G,mode=1777 overflow /tmp

And check
Code:
df -h
