Getting issue on creating my first snap - Python


I am trying create new snap using, while building snapcraft i am getting below error

error: unknown flag `check-skeleton’
Failed to verify directory to pack.

Please help me to fix this

Thanks in advance

What’s the output of snap version?

snap 2.39.2+18.04
snapd 2.39.2+18.04
series 16
ubuntu 18.04
kernel 4.15.0-55-generic

I think you might be running snapcraft from the deb package. What’s the output of which snapcraft? If it’s not /snap/bin/snapcraft, then

apt remove snapcraft
snap install snapcraft

and try again.

@chipaca i have installed snapcraft through snap only

for me which snapcraft returning /snap/bin/snapcraft only

What’s the output of snap list core?

core 16-2.32.5 4486 stable canonical* core

why hasn’t that core refreshed in … over a year? How?

Could you sudo apt install pastebinit, and then

sudo journalctl -u snapd | pastebinit

and share that URL?

I am new to this, what version of core i need to use

I am getting error for this command

Failed to contact the server: [Errno socket error] [SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed (_ssl.c:852)

smells like you have some network issue there, pastebinit can apparently not access the server (which is probably also the reason that core did not get updated)

are you using a https proxy or some such ?
