I didn't mess up my system, I don't put stuff in /. If a set of
software is putting stuff in /, that needs to be paid attention, and
corrected in the chain.
PackageKit fills up /var/cache/PackageKit with downloaded packages.
If you always use dnf and not the graphical updater, it will never get
deleted and the system will crash when / runs out of space. The
upgrade itself also uses space to download everything.
