Default apps wont install due to not enough free space, but i have plenty

See screenshot. My phone looks like it only has 550MB free but it's barely using 2.5GB.. so should have plenty free. Market isn't letting me install anything and giving me an error.

I'm running CyanogenMod Version 11-20140214-Linaro-jfftetmo Android 4.4.2

Are you using clockworkmod recovery?

If so the missing space is likely being taken up by nandroid backups that you’ve made. Clockworkmod hides the backups it makes in the internal SD card unless you chance the backup location in settings. And for some reason the files don't show up in the stock storage graph.
Do you want insanely better battery drain when your phone is idle? Check out this thread!
