See the first line in df -h:

Your / partition is full (overful, halfway precisely speaking).
512 MB is a bit small for a 8.1 install. See if you can remove
unneeded stuff (for example old kernels).

The home directory for root is /root which resides on /. You
can create /home/root and specify it (via chsh) as root's
new home directory. In this case, it will be on whatever
partition /home is on.
