Comment(by mavrothal):

 Just tried it after updating the XO-1.75 to os20. Same problem.  "yum
 provides cheese" runs out of space in /var/tmp. However,  "sudo yum
 provides cheese" runs fine. Apparently running "yum provides" as an
 unprivileged user copies things to /var/tmp generating the problem
