Can't get snap working on debian 11

error: cannot communicate with server: Post “http://localhost/v2/snaps/sabnzbd”: dial unix /run/snapd.socket: connect: no such file or directory

No idea what this means???

Hi, thanks for the reply.

your snapd is not running, check with journalctl why it does not start … (post the output to a pastebin and link it here if there are no clear messages)

Try this: systemctl enable --now snapd.socket snapd.service. It seems your installation is either incomplete or that snapd was disabled.

The error message says that the snap program cannot talk to over the UNIX socket (a communication mechanism) because it cannot connect to the socket with the given path. This means nothing is listening on the socket path. The command I’ve given should fix this, assuming snapd is installed correctly.

Thank you very much.
