Command line says there's no more disk space but there really is

I'm following some instructions to update NOOBS on my microSD card but the command line is saying I don't have enough space to copy data but according to the File Manager I should have plenty.

This command will inform you about the free space on the mounted partitions:

Code: Select all

df -h
The file maneger shows the free space of root. But the destination of cp is not root but /dev/mmcblk0p1 (maybe a NOOBS partition?).
