    Clear all the Internet cache and also open System Preferences->Flash Player and delete its cache too.

    Long story short, 20GB of free space is too little.

    Clear up your space and move unnecessary items elsewhere.

    Better still, only backup what you need and perform a clean install.

    That's just nuts. 20 GB of free space is fine for anything the system needs to do to run. Web browsers don't need that much either, certainly not being wasted on a cache. Caches should be cleared regularly anyway, since we don't need the whole damn internet on our computers.

    If it was 20 MB, then i'd agree.
