You don't need space in /tmp, you need space in the root filesystem "/".

On AIX this FS comes by default with just 512 MB which is too small for most servers.

Please check if there is sufficient space in rootvg:

lsvg rootvg | grep  "FREE PPs:"

Look for the value in parentheses (megabytes).

If there are at least ~ 1600 MB available (better more!) run this command:

chfs -a size=+1250M /

and retry.

If there is not enough free space in rootvg please let me know.
