Go into / as root and run du -sh * | grep G which will show you directories that are a gb or larger.. paste the output.. then we'll kind of traverse down the likely suspect directories.
Hi Rob I apologize to post on the solved thread and thank you for making one for me. I am totally new using ubuntu 18.04 for a couple of months now. My laptop is a Lenovo G410. Going back to the low disk. Below is the output.
[email protected]:/home/user# du -sh * | grep G
6.9G Desktop
3.8G Downloads
48K GNS3
19G VirtualBox VMs #I already removed 1VM here

let me do a reboot now.

so, we can see from your first post that you're using about 17gigs in /. While that command showed what's in /home/user/ .. and that adds up to a lot, let's do a different command to make sure you're looking down from the top (/) directory:
du -sh /* |grep G
Here is the output
Below is the output.
