I'm not aware of previous discussion, maybe it was before my time :)

As far as I know, the only way to get this kind of issue is to install
hundreds of language packs.  Very few people do that, most of us do not
speak *that* many languages!  There are many packs on the CD, but by
default we do not install all of them.

The output of

  dpkg-query -W language-pack-\?\?

might be interesting to know in working on this issue.

If I am correct, the workaround is to not install (or uninstall!) all
the language packs for languages you do not need :)

More generally, if you do a lot of updates in a low-disk-space
environment, doing

  sudo apt-get clean

can free up significant disk space.
