Running Snap on Debian Environment on Chromebook

Whenever I try to install anything using snap, I get the following: error: system does not fully support snapd: cannot mount squashfs image using “squashfs”: mount: /tmp/sanity-mountpoint-835821758: mount failed: Operation not permitted. Is there a workaround?



Found the solution immediatly after, for any that find this post, This is what worked for me:

#sudo dnf install squashfs-tools squashfuse

#sudo apt install libsquashfuse0 squashfuse fuse

#sudo apt install snapd

#snap install hello-world

As soon as the installation of hello-world snap completes, you will need to type the following command in your terminal and then press the Enter key:


If this command is executed successfully, you will be able to see “Hello World!” written on your terminal


Any updates? Currently having the same issue… will not mount regardless of user. su, sudo, root, fresh install, etc… guessing it is a Overlord-Chrome issue…

Thanks for the info. Just one thing, though: unless I’m missing something, your first command should use “apt” instead of “dnf”. I’m guessing that you occasionally use Fedora or Red Hat.
