Help about updates

I just started to use linux mint, and installed the snap package to install some apps, but i have a question about when the apps get an update, will i get notified about that? will snap automatically update the apps i have installed or do i have to manually keep checkinga bout new updates?

by default, snapd will check for updates four times a day. You can tune that to better suit your needs (see system options), but that’s the default.


Thank you, but will it notify me if i want to update or will it automatically install the updates without notifying?

It will automatically install the updates in the background unless its confinement mode changes (classic confinement <-> strict confinement), in this case the update process will be blocked until the user acknowledge them by running the appropriate snap refresh commands.
