Can anybody help with this? I'd like to update NUSSpli but I get a message saying device is full, but it isn't.

I didn't realize you needed an sd card. I thought the files were downloaded to the import folder of internal memory, which is where they go when downloading from the eshop, then they're moved to the appropriate location during installation.

The SD cards holds all the programmes. The games could go into internal memory, but the Wii U doesn't have much space, so most people use an external harddrive. From NUSspli you can choose where to install the games.

It depends on the download destination, as it can download files to SD then install to import, or download the files to a USB drive, then it installs to USB, same with NAND. SD Card space is only an issue when selecting the option to download said files to the SD Card, if OP had tried to download the files to USB or NAND it would have worked just fine. However as V10lator has said repeatedly, it's not recommended to download the files to NAND as it can significantly decrease it's write-cycle / lifetime.

That's not 100% correct: The files get installed to the import folder, then moved to the final destination.
Anyway, the issue here wasn't related to this at all but it was NUSspli updating itself. For that it downloads the zip file from GitHub to RAM, extracts it to a temporary folder on the SD card and then either installes it (channel) or moves it to the final destination (HBL). So, as @Lostbhoy assumed, the issue was no space left on the SD card to create the temporary directory.

P.S. We do this temporary directory on SD as the user might not have a USB drive connected and we don't want to wear out the NAND.
