Other applications are saying the disk is full as well, any ideas?

Here's the output from df -h

Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/simfs      400G  132G  714M 100% /

    Check your inode usage too: df -iah

Your issue is most likely that your OpenVZ host has a full disk.

The /dev/simfs device is used as a proxy filesystem, allowing the guest to isolate filesystems between guests while at the same time avoiding the overhead of allocating a block of space for an image-file disk.
