I’m using Ubuntu 20.04 and can’t use any snap packages. I had the same issue with 19.10 and hoped the LTS release would have addressed the issue. Whenever I try to run a program installed from Ubuntu Software I keep getting messages like:
cannot perform operation:
mount --rbind /root /tmp/snap.rootfs_GIHlMA//root: Permission denied
I’ve googled the issue for quite some time and it keeps coming back to where my home directory is, but that makes no sense.
My home directory is /home/arthur
/ is mounted on /dev/sda1
/home is mounted on /dev/sda2
The relevant fstab entries are:
UUID=aa29d5d6-1ed5-4c24-8a66-38667ac9e7ed / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 UUID=59b2eb44-b903-4795-9e35-94a13dfcd0db /home ext4 user,errors=remount-ro,auto,exec,rw
and here is the relevant output from df
/dev/sda1 119133984 49336548 63676068 44% / /dev/sda2 119366868 93614140 19646156 83% /home
Seems like a normal setup, but I can’t figure out what else could be causing this.
Does anyone have any ideas?
