Before posting something, READ the changelog, WATCH the videos, howto and provide following:
Your install is: Bare metal, ESXi, what CPU model, RAM, HD, what EVE version you have, output of the uname -a and any other info that might help us faster.

remove old software packages

I have updated eve and ran into an issue of being out of space

root@eve-ng:~# df
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
udev 16455560 0 16455560 0% /dev
tmpfs 3294592 14492 3280100 1% /run
/dev/mapper/eve--ng--vg-root 142837160 54720916 82109472 40% /
tmpfs 16472948 0 16472948 0% /dev/shm
tmpfs 5120 0 5120 0% /run/lock
tmpfs 16472948 0 16472948 0% /sys/fs/cgroup
/dev/sda1 482922 470028 0 100% /boot

after looking i noticed i have 5 old versions of qemu on my system and wanted to know if it was safe to remove these while making other adjustments?

Also is there a process to remove other old versions of software that can be included or instructions for?
