That would be at best difficult...

See how much space /var/cache/apt/archives uses, you can type "du -s
/var/cache/apt/archives" to find out (in Kbytes). That's where apt
stores downloaded packages. If you don't need to keep them, you could
erase what is there with "apt-get clean". Maybe that will free enough
space to do your apt-get dist-upgrade...
