I am trying to install snapd per these instructions:
The EPEL packages require a system that is based on RHEL7. With that in mind, only Amazon Linux 2 fits the bill. This is how
/etc/os-release looks like in our images:
google:amazon-linux-2-64 .../mini/hello# cat /etc/os-release NAME="Amazon Linux" VERSION="2" ID="amzn" ID_LIKE="centos rhel fedora" VERSION_ID="2" PRETTY_NAME="Amazon Linux 2" ANSI_COLOR="0;33" CPE_NAME="cpe:2.3:o:amazon:amazon_linux:2" HOME_URL="https://amazonlinux.com/"
I too have Amazon Linux and need to install snapd and can’t get past this. If anyone finds a solution, post a reply. Thanks!
Please try using the repository I linked to in this topic:
Thank you but cant get snapd to install on Amazon Linux AMI. Error: Package: snap-confine-2.48.2-1.amzn2.1.x86_64 (snapd-amzn2)
Is this on Amazon Linux 2? Can you attach the output of
cat /etc/os-release ?
Looking into the original question image, it seems to be Amazon Linux 1.
And i have the same problem, as i am unable to renew my letsencrypt certificates without snapd. Although i was able to install EPEL from yum. Below are the details
NAME=“Amazon Linux AMI”
PRETTY_NAME=“Amazon Linux AMI 2018.03”
Amazon Linux 1 is unsupported, and is missing pieces that snapd relies on. I suggest you try the let’s encrypt mailing lists/IRC channels or forums to ask questions about supporting your system.
Ooh, Thank you for quick response.
