Hi. Did you find out what caused this? I have the same error message on my snap

(installation not allowed by "shutdown" plug rule of interface "shutdown")

@jeremy, not to my knowledge, because I’ve abandoned the snap (presumably for that reason):

RokeJulianLockhart@sayw4i:~$ sudo dnf install fwupd
[sudo] password for RokeJulianLockhart: 
Last metadata expiration check: 3:05:02 ago on Wed 17 Apr 2024 19:58:31 BST.
Package fwupd-1.9.16-1.fc40.x86_64 is already installed.
Dependencies resolved.
Nothing to do.

However, a cursory search reveals, which appears relevant, and is from exactly the same time period that I reported this at. Perhaps ask there.

At the very least, I’m able to install it now:

RokeJulianLockhart@sayw4i:~$ snap install fwupd --edge
fwupd (edge) 1.9.10-731-g8e1d4d749 from Richard Hughes installed

Thanks. Looks like they resolved it by getting permission granted for the shutdown plug. I’ll doublecheck that it’s granted for our snap.
