If you are planning to move to another drive anyways soon, did you try 
to free up space?

My usual suspects are

* pacman -Sc or -Scc

* journalctl --vacuum-size=50M

* logs and other stuff on /var

* nfs cache

Also, ncdu can be of great help to find huge files and folders you might 
not need any more.
