Error: Sorry, not enough space left

Ah! I got ‘Sorry, not enough space left’ error. If you don’t get this error then it’s good otherwise, you will need to uninstall some installed wallet apps such Bitcoin, Ethereum, and the like from your Ledger device to make some space for new update.

Don’t worry! if you uninstall an app, your coins remain intact. After reinstalling the app, your funds will reflect again. It happens because your coins are not associated with the wallet app.

Next, as you can see, my device has not enough space for this installation, so to make some space, I’m going to uninstall Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP and Litecoin wallet apps. To uninstall an app, from the manager section, click on ‘Delete’ icon next a wallet app you want to uninstall.

Okay, I’ve uninstalled 4 apps from my device and I assume now my Ledger Nano S is ready for latest firmware update.

Let’s click on ‘Update’ again and then ‘Continue’.

Hurray! update started.

FAQs on Ledger Nano S Firmware and MCU Update

What if I don’t update my Ledger device?

Nothing will happen. It’s not mandatory to update Ledger Nano S, X or Blue. However, you should update it to unlock new features and updates for example you’ll be able to install up to 20 apps. At the top, latest update brings some security improvements therefore just to keep your device secure, keep it up to date.

How many apps will I be able to install after updating my Ledger Nano S, X or Blue?

It depends upon the size of the apps. According to Ledger, you can install up to 20 apps on your Ledger Nano S, up to 100 in case of Ledger Nano X; depending on the cryptocurrencies you install. Some wallet apps occupy more space therefore this number may vary. However, you’ll be able to install 5 to 7 apps easily in model S.

Do I need to enter recovery seed again?

No, update doesn’t wipe out your seed. But it’s very risky to update Ledger without having private key. I suggest you refrain from updating your device if you don’t have recovery seed.
