    I’m flashing a Moto G 2013 with RR 6 or 7.

    After flashing, when I try to instal Gapps 8.1 pico it tells me “insufficient storage space available in system partition, You may want to use a smaller Gapps package (…)”.

    Only there are no smaller Gapps packages than Pico!

    The log files indicate it is 13MB short.

    With RR 7, same thing happens, only with Gapps 9.0 space is about 50MB short.

    I have tried the resize filing system option for /system, but it makes no difference.

    I am using TWRP 3.3.1-0.

      This is weird. I did a research about the issue. Is it showing error 70? If yes just search for “Fix error 70 install Gapps on TWRP” on google there is a guide available on Xda which is little outdated but it may work. Let me know what do you think
