Can't update flake lock

I don’t think I changed anything special lately. But today I tried to run the `nix flake update’, which fails

nix flake update
error:
       … while updating the lock file of flake 'git+file:///home/thibaultmol/nix/Nixos-personal?ref=refs/heads/main&rev=fc8c58292cba9e8f1c862ad8ec509bca10d7e373'

       … while updating the flake input 'nixpkgs'

my nix flake is located in a user owned folder, i’ve tried running it with sudo as well but same result.

does --show-trace add info or even -vv ?

Are you running out of /tmp space by any chance?

show-trace didn’t output anything different from the normal command?
but vv did:

@polygon it’s low I guess, but still should work right?

df -h /tmp

made some space, now that command says 19G available, but still same error

what is permissions situation in /tmp, nix-daemon can access it ?
maybe you also check if it is mounted readonly for some reason ?
systemd logs ?
are you by any chance running this in a vm of some kind, i. e. WSL ?

permissions were ok,
wasn’t mounted read only
i think it might have been the usage anyway somehow?

I ran these commands and now it’s good again:
