I am experimenting with a system that runs on a server or device. The concept is that there is a main control snap application that reaches out to an external API and receives some data. Based on the data, it would install one or more other snaps.
I wouldn’t package these at build time, it would be configured during runtime.
The thought was that I could call ‘snap install’ form within the container, and I swear this worked at some point, but seems to no longer work. It is possible I manually installed the snap using ‘unsafe’.
Is it possible to run snap commands form within a snap? I thought I had this working at some point but seems now I get “Permission Denied”.
I have tried “confinement: classic” as well as adding “snapd-control” to my plugs, but neither seem to work.
I have searched around for something like this but cannot find an example of this working, or discussion about this. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you, Rob
