"YouTube could not run because there is not enough space"

I can't get YouTube to run on my Roku.  I've even uninstalled all of the other channels and get the same result.  We have 2 other Rokus in our house and neither have the same issue.  Is the problem in the stick or where are they getting the "space" information.  How much space is on the Roku stick and how much does Youtuve use?

Re: "YouTube could not run because there is not enough space"

I'm running into the same very frustrating issue too on my Roku Express+ 3910RW when trying to view YouTube (get error message "Can't run channel" "... not enough space...") along with Apple TV not loading (will load to 100% and then return to the Home screen without loading).

Please, please Roku try to fix this huge and VERY annoying problem and please work with Google too if the issue is with their YouTube channel code!! 

And if this is not a bug in RokuOS, then when the "Can't run channel" message appears, instead of only giving the "OK" choice, please also give a choice to view which channels are taking up most of the space so we can try to focus on removing those channels.  Thanks!

Please do not keep ignoring this issue, Roku, and please STOP blaming the user -- you, Roku, are ultimately responsible for the user experience.

Discovered this issue yesterday. It just happened all of a sudden. I did what it said-deleted channels but keeps giving me the sane message. Anyone got this resolved? Please share. Thanks.

Ditto here on my TCL TV. Fire stick works fine.
