    I'm getting this error despite having 140gb of storage left. I am using archlinux and I set the unity installation directory to /home/my_username

    If you could help that would be greatly appreciated

    Thank you

    This is why I came to the forum. No help? This is the fourth post asking about this that I've found and there are zero answers.

    I actually found a solution for this - it turned out that as i use archlinux, the temporary filesystem used to download the files to before installing was /tmp, which only had 4gb - 20gb is needed for unity. The way i fixed this was by setting an environment variable before starting unity hub, to manually force it to use a different location. If you're also on linux, this command worked (bash):

    TEMP=/path/to/dir/of/your/choice && ./UnityHub.AppImage
