My original plan was to change the admin account to a standard account and then create a new administrator account.
Why not do it the other way around. First create a new account and give it Admin status. Log out and then in to the new Admin account and from there reset the first Admin account to standard.

That's what I meant. My original plan was:
1) Create a new account with admin privileges.
2) Make the original account a standard account.
Unfortunately, this does not work because the name of the original account is: "admin". And for whatever reason, it is impossible to remove admin privileges from an account named: "admin". The checkbox for doing so is grayed out.

The problem has been fixed. I'm not sure why the message said that it only needed 6 GB to save the home folder, because as it turns out one of the folders in the Home Folder was actually ~50 GB all by itself. I removed that folder (since I didn't need what was in it anyway) and now I am able to save the home folder.

Log out of your old account and log in to the new Account you created and delete the old account from there.
