I sometimes see this message even when there apparently still several GB
free. I suspect that dirvish or more likely rsync needs some working
room whilst it is building the new image. I haven't bothered
investigating because it's always been easier to add a little more
space. In my case, the space is going to be needed soon in any case so
it's only bringing forward an existing need.

FWIW, I use resierfs

Cheers, Dave
