On one of my systems, I get the following messages:

I have plenty of empty disk space, but noticed many /dev/loop devices that appear to be full. Is the low disk space message due to low space in a VM? If so, can I configure the VM to be larger?

Looks more like a BOINC client message.
What (diskspace) quota do you allow your BOINC client to use?
You may check if that quota is already full.

I should probably add that this is a 64core 7702P Rome CPU with 256GB of memory, 1TB ssd for home partition and 250GB ssd for system:

Boinc-client can't fetch more data then 100GB it is a hardcoded limit. Above this size it would blame on low disk space. Lower 100GB and let client run out work that is waiting and would clear out by it self.

If have other project that need high disk space you could setup a secondary data folder and run another client parallel. But remember to give it 50/50 share in cpu and ram to it if so.
