while attempting to update to ver 16.02f, i got a prompt about "could not log for sv" , "failed with no space left on device"

How do I get myself out of this?
Napp It is a VM on my esxi 6

much thanks for your help!

seems your systemdisk is full:
try to delete unneeded boot environments

list them at console as root
beadm list

destroy one of them (any beside the current, use oldest)
beadm destroy name_of_be

then
you can either reinstall napp-it via the wget command
or copy the content of /var/web-gui/data_last (last state) to
/var/web-gui/data/ (active state)

Thanks Gea. I managed to get back in after deleting all the snapshots on the VM, and magically it could boot normally again.
Is this a known occurence ? having snapshots will take up space which prevents updates?

A snapshot needs space (ESXi) or blocks space (ZFS) so at some point the disk is simply full.
