100% used disk - Ubuntu 14.04

Hi, I have a droplet, and I was turning crazy looking for disk usage, I tried with:

du -d 5

and many other commands… and I didn´t find anything.

The message:

# df
Filesystem     1K-blocks     Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/vda1       20511356 19447420         0 100% /

But only rebooting system:

~$ df
Filesystem     1K-blocks    Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/vda1       20511356 2884808  16561592  15% /

Anyone knows what it happens?

I feel is like an issue with digitalocean droplet but I don´t find any explanation.
