There are rumours that on devices with tiny NAND (16MB or less, your hAP lite falls into this category) update packages are actually downloaded into RAM (which is low on your device as well). Try to reboot device (some memory might get freed). Do you have any static address lists with large number of members?

Another possibility (which would be actually benefitial for your device) would be to go to individual package installation instead of bundle - which contains a few packages you most probably don't need, such as ipv6 (you disabled it), mpls, hotspot, routing, ... You'll save some NAND space and RAM.

You can do it by downloading "extra packages" for your architecture, then only upload to router packages you really need (system, wireless, dhcp, security, ... perhaps advanced-tools ... read up package descriptions). After selected packages are successfully uploaded, reboot device (it should pick up new packages and upgrade itself).

Thanks for the answer.
Configuration reset.
I reset the configuration many times.
I tried to enable, disable, system packages, no changes occur after a reboot.
They are unchanged as shown in the post above.
This firmware is from the factory.
As soon as it was purchased, an attempt to update the firmware caused a not enough disk space.
Any attempts, including through net-install, result in a not enough disk space.

I guess it's time to ask support@mikrotik.com for advice ...

From original post:
Through net-install the same error.
This sounds weird to me, but let's just assume poster tried netinstall, that it actually succeeded and he can't upgrade to newer ROS afterwards.

Same problem here. Trying to upgrade hap lite to 6.43.12.

The update is 7.4MB.

I have deleted everything from files except for skins that's an empty directory.

Files reports 8.4MiB of 16.0MiB used.

I've restarted the router and tried again.

[admin@nimda] > /tool fetch url=https://download2.mikrotik.com/routeros ... .43.12.npk
status: failed




failure: cannot download: file too large, no space left on disk

Contacting support now.

As I said on some other thread about exactly the same problem, I had to NetInstall it using the Extra packages - that allows you to remove the ones you don't want, so that upgrades will succeed next time.
I Netinstalled 6.43.12 a couple of weeks ago and I upgraded to 6.44 without problems.

1. Make a backup and export, save them on your PC

2. Disable all the packages you can including this:
hotspot
ipv6
mpls
ppp
routing
wireless
advanced tools

3. Reboot

4. Upgrade using only this packages taking them from the all packages zip:
system
security
dhcp

5. Reboot

6. After successful upgrade proceed to upgrade routerboot in system routerboard upgrade

7. Reboot

8. now install the additional packages you need only
