Package: base-config
Version: 2.53.4
Severity: wishlist

If tasksel fails, base-config displays a generic error message that
does not distinguish whether the disk is full from whether a package
is broken.  It would be helpful if it provided more information.

Do dpkg and aptitude use a special error code for out of space?

I don't know.  Would it be possible to use df?

From a quick git grep ENOSPC in both dpkg.git and apt.git, no match
except a single unrelated one for apport on the apt side. Pinging the
relevant maintainers to make sure might be an idea, asking them how much
would be needed to implement it if needed would be another one.
