    You could reinstall it. That should get you the version with the update included.

    Intereresting. I tried to reinstall Spark which I had deleted from my boot drive and from my backup drive.

    When I tried to reinstall I get the same message:

    We could not complete your purchase.

    There is not enough disk space available to install the product.

    I tried to install something else (ToDoIst) and it installed without difficulty.

    Something about Sparků.

    Might this help?

    How to clean install Spark | Spark Help Center

    It actually doesn't say how to install it, but if you clean out as it says, then try the install again maybe something in that folder is triggering the error?

    I'll give that a shot. I also tried to reinstall Mimeo Photos which is the other one that gave me the disk space error. It also would not reinstall for the same, erroneous, disk space issue.

    Maybe boot to Recovery and run First Aid on the drive? I'm clutching for straws here...

    I booted from recovery and did Disk First Aid just last weekend after I first had the trouble with updating Mimeo Photos. DU found no problem with the drive. I also ran fsck from the command line while in recovery mode with the same result. No errors. And, I tried booting from a clone and running DU on the boot. Nothin'.

    I tried deleting the Group Container files for both Mimeo Photos and Spark. (And, I emptied the Trash.) App Store still won't reinstall them. Same error message.

    I've never used either of those apps, so this is not an urgent problem. But, it vexes me that App Store produces such a deceptive error message. And, it might matter later when I'm unable to update an app that I actually need to use.

    (I never solved the self-assigned IP address problem, either. Sadly, some problems have no solution.)

    In this thread: Receiving a "There is not enough disk… - Apple Community

    The solution was to turn off TM. That has the effect of erasing all of the snapshots TM takes and frees up the space immediately. Might that be part of it?

    @Jake: I'm not sure that still works. I have experimented with snapshots from TM and it appears that the only way I could remove the snapshots was to use a terminal command. I believe the snapshots remain as long as there appears to be sufficient space on the drive. I know that it worked at one time, however, it may have changed since High Sierra or Mojave.

    Try it yourself to see if it still works that way.

    Turning off automatic backups on Time Machine didn't work for me. The local snapshots remain:

    @Charlie: I'm not in Catalina and I have TM off normally, with it only coming on twice a day under TimeMachineEditor. So I can't test if it works because I only have two and the TM system is off.

    @Ratsima, I think if you do a TM backup the snapshots are then purged. That might free enough that if you immediately try the install it works? Again, straws...

    But why am I worried about freeing up space on a drive that has 160GB free?

    Code:
    MrMuscle:/ mnewman$ df -h /
    Filesystem     Size   Used  Avail Capacity iused               ifree %iused  Mounted on

    Now, this is troubling. How is it that "System" takes up over 240GB of Storage?

    I think the snapshots are considered "System" files. Plus any scratch/spool/paging space. You might try running OnyX to clean out some of the cache, etc.

    @Jake:

    That doesn't work for TM or CCC.

    Notice that @Ratsima has both CCC and Time Machine snapshots taking up space. With the number of snapshots he's showing, I'm betting the space it's taking up is substantial.

    This will purge them for sure:

    tmutil listlocalsnapshotdates / |grep 20|while read f; do tmutil deletelocalsnapshots $f; done

    or

    sudo tmutil thinLocalSnapshots / 10000000000 4
