No space left on the device when /dev/sda is only at 84%

This is happening on my linode, I should have 40GB+ left but /dev/sda thinks it's full. I can't move regular files but I can make a big file with
dd. Linode support says that's normal but that can't be right.
Also just to see if the disk was bad I "cloned" the linode and the same problem happens on the new one. Am I missing something?
Edit - here's what I was seeing when I tried to do tab completion:
-bash: cannot create temp file for here-document: No space left on device
