 AIUI  you need twice the amount of HDD space as the system will take up, to 
do an upgrade.  It has to cache the new stuff while the old stuff is still 
present.  Of course that's a simplification, but good enough to explain your 
problem, I think.

The only way you are going to get this onto your 10GB drive, IMO, is to back 
up your /home (and preferably /etc) directory so that you can copy back 
required configuration files, then do a clean install.
