The command "rug update" fails with insufficient disk space.
ERROR: insufficient disk space


    Change the zmd cache directory to a partition or network share with more capacity; proceed as follows:
    1. Add the new cache directory location in the file /etc/fstab.
    2. Mount the partition/share.
    3. Use the rug command to change the cache directory location:

      rug set cache-directory '/nfs/newcachefolder'

    Note: The new partition where the cache will be placed needs to be mounted either manually or by adding a line to /etc/fstab. The new partition cannot be used with autofs (the automounter for Linux). With autofs the error would still appear.
