    1) First clean up! Check unix.stackexchange.com/questions/40442/… and see which large packages you can remove. 2) Use the SDcard for moving large, but less system-critical directories like /var/cache and /usr/local/share to the SDcard and mount that directories to their correct place via /etc/fstab. This way apt can work normally without caring for special paths, and your system will not die on SDcard problems. – Philippos Oct 14 '19 at 11:28
