Try adding sudo to the start of the command, before the du. You should be prompted for your password at that point.

"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

New Indeed, sudo does it.
$ sudo du / | sort -n | tail -10

WARNING: Improper use of the sudo command could lead to data loss
or the deletion of important system files. Please double-check your
typing when using sudo. Type "man sudo" for more information.

The "vm" scares me - it make me thing of virutal memory, but the private should make it safe.
