"need to run as root or suid" on all snaps

I’m running Ubuntu 21.04, and recently updated my machine, then rebooted. Now I can’t launch any snaps at all. null is the simplest snap, and won’t launch, but the same happens for every snap I test.

I have proposed enabled, which I did because I believe I need 5.10 kernel because a bug in 5.8 makes my nvme go read only periodically.

Something may have come down from proposed on hirsute which messed my machine? I don’t know.

alan@robot:~$ snap version
snap    2.49+21.04
snapd   2.49+21.04
series  16
ubuntu  21.04
kernel  5.10.0-14-generic

Any ideas what I can do to debug/fix this? My machine is pretty useless right now.
