It seems like your rootfs (/) is at 100%! Try cleaning it up first, maybe try yum clean all.

thank you, it works fine, I'm using vmbox with 8GB virtual heard drive but root directory content 4.1GB ? I cannot understand why, is there anyway to increase the virtual disk space in vmbox ?… – Roledenez Jul 1 '14 at 16:18
It'd probably easier to attach another storage and mount it separately (outside of root). Try use Google, search for: virtualbox add storage linux. – alexus Jul 1 '14 at 16:20
+1 That did it at first but when it came time to download the dependency it gave the same error. I deleted a huge zip file, all I am trying to do is install python26 – Neo Dec 12 '14 at 21:49

You're out of space. Free up some or get a bigger disk.
