openSUSE updated to snapd 2.36


Last night I released a big update to all openSUSE Leap 42.3, Leap 15 and Tumbleweed. They are all now in sync on the 2.36 release with one important patch cherry picked from the upcoming 2.36.1.

I’ve completed exploratory testing on my systems covering the whole set as well as ran the spread suite against Leap 42.3 with no issues at all.

Existing installations should update with zypper:

sudo zypper refresh snappy
sudo zypper dup

After the update the version, as reported by snap version should be 2.36-1 where -1 varies across Leap versions.

If you don’t see the update on your system you should double check if the repository is refreshing correctly. In case it does not follow those instructions:

sudo zypper removerepo snappy
sudo zypper addrepo --refresh snappy

The important part is the --refresh flag.

As always, please replace the last component with the name of the distribution you are using. Supported values are: openSUSE_Leap_42.3, openSUSE_Leap_15.0 and openSUSE_Tumbleweed.
