My problem, apparently, was different somewhat... I started the app to install MacOs Catalina, it all seemed right unitl I saw a message like the original post. Options given to me: restart or shutdown. I restarted, the installations restarted and got stuck on the same screen. I restarted with Command R and entered the terminal, deleted as many big files as I could, having almost 30Gb free, but didn't solve the problem (in that moment I backed up all the files I knew wheren't on any time machine backups and tried to continue). Continued stuck. I then tried to reinstall Mojave, but when I selected the Macbook Disk it said that it was going to be wiped clean... I didn't proceed and followed the step 2. It said that the disk was going to be wiped... without any other options I resumed this procedure, since my last backup was a few days ago and everything else important is in the cloud. This was a very poor update!!!! If I didn't have an external time machine disk with a recent backup, it would be very bad!!! I use Macbooks for over 10 years, this was the first upgrade with any problems, somebody screwed very badly here!!!
