"Low Disk Space on Filesystem root" after installing Axolotl and Podcasts

Additionally I had tried to follow @dukla2000's suggestion to supplement the storage with an SD card but whenever I put one (an older and a very new & fast model, both 64 GB, both Samsung) the phone does not boot (green LED, black screen & nothing else), no matter whether I format them as ext4, fat or exfat. (I had used both of them for Megi's multi distro image before reformatting them.) What could be the problem?

They both still have a residual bootloader on them but no corresponding operating system files. Clear the bootloader as per instructions here.
  • ROCKPro64 v2.1 2GB, 16Gb eMMC for rootfs, SX8200Pro 512GB NVMe for /home, HDMI video & sound, Bluetooth keyboard & mouse. Arch (5.13 kernel, Openbox desktop) for general purpose daily PC.
  • PinePhone BraveHeart now v1.2b 3/32Gb daily driver, dual boot via p-boot with Mobian/f2fs/Phosh on eMMC, Arch/ext4/Phosh on SDcard
  • PinePhone v1.2a 2G/16Gb that needs USB board replaced
That did it! Thank you!

And thank you so much for the link -- the page answers so many questions I had:
--Thanks to scale-to-fit I can now use GPodder (sort of)
-I have learned that GPS actually works (Maps and Open Street Maps in the Gnome Browser still show some address in Frankfurt, Germany, as my location but at least now I know that this is not some random placeholder but that it is actually measured (albeit falsely), so thats a point to start to look for the error.)
-There is a manual on how to "Mount SDcard as /home"; that was one of the next things I wanted to do (though encrypted)

...and I am sure there's a lot more to discover once I read the whole thing.
