Snap.d error: cannot communicate with server connection refused

error: cannot communicate with server: Post http://localhost/v2/snaps/hello-world: dial unix /run/snapd.socket: connect: connection refused

Can’t get anything snap to work. What the? For instance, if I even try to run the basic calculator that comes with Ubuntu, it doesn’t even run. If I try to start calculator, it says:

/var/lib/snapd has 'other' write 40777

Any ideas?

that looks like snapd did not start at all … take a look with

systemctl status snapd.service

also (not sure if it works in that state) the output of snap version would surely be helpful

The error I receive is:

janderson@jUbuntu:~$ systemctl status snapd.service

Also

janderson@jUbuntu:~$ snap version
snap    2.32.9+18.04
snapd   unavailable
series  -

very interesting that your snap version output stops at “series” where it should also show kernel version and the release you are running, like:

$ snap version
snap    2.33
snapd   2.33
series  16
ubuntu  16.04
kernel  4.13.0-43-generic

is this an unmodified 18.04 install using default packages for kernel and such ?

Weird, yes it’s an unmodified version. The only things I’ve done is:

  • Install PHP Storm IDE
  • Install Slack
  • Install Sublime text editor
  • Install PHP 7.1, Nginx, MySQL
  • Install Symless Synergy (1 mouse between 2 pcs)
  • Install Discord
  • Install Filezilla
  • Set my DNS to Google DNS ( 8.8.8.8 )

Also modified hosts for working with Magento 2.2.2 cms platform

127.0.0.1	localhost

This machine also dual boots Ubuntu 18.04 and Windows 10 pro 64-bit.

perhaps @zyga or @chipaca have more suggestions how to debug this …

Hey

Can you please provide journalctl -xu snapd.service

Sure thing! It is:

(Was too long for post)

https://pastebin.com/iA5vbZWX

Hmm

Can you systemctl start snapd.service now? I don’t see anything bad in the logs

I didn’t see it initially, but there was more, I had to scroll down in terminal. Too much to post on the forum:

https://pastebin.com/iA5vbZWX

So the issue is:

Jun 25 08:14:12 jUbuntu snapd[1107]: error: assert storage root unexpectedly world-writable: /var/lib/snapd/assertions/asserts-v0

Did you do some chmoding?

I don’t recall doing any chmodding of that directory, I did chmod my home/janderson/magento2 directory though, where I develop in Magento locally.

What should the permissions of that directory be?

Well, something has changed the permissions. Just make sure they are not world writable. sudo chmod o-w /var/lib/snapd/assertions/asserts-v0 should do it

All righty, just tried that, then ran

janderson@jUbuntu:~$ systemctl start snapd.service
Job for snapd.service failed because the control process exited with error code.
See "systemctl status snapd.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

I think you broke your system. I don’t think this is a snapd issue really. My suggestion would be to make a backup of essential data and reinstall.

Hi, been having the same issue for some time now.
I uninstalled snap and re-installed it again to solve the error:

$ sudo apt autoremove --purge snapd

$ sudo apt install snapd

I’ve been having the same issue, I am using ubuntu core on a raspberripi 3B+. I can ping google.com.
here is the return of systemctl status snapd.service:

● snapd.service - Snappy daemon

and here is the journalctl -xe and as you can see it failed, I have restarted the snap, reboot the system and no luck. I removed the support links to be able to post

Hi,

could you describe your issue in more detail?

Also, could you paste the output of snap version?

Thank you.

I have try to use snap refresh, sudo systemctl restart, so on and so forth and always get the same error: cannot communicate with server: Post http://localhost/v2/snaps/

@localhost:~$ snap version
snap 2.37.1
snapd unavailable
series -

a couple of days ago I was able to get the snapd and series information, but I was never able to use snap to get an app. So I do not know what I did wrong, I am a rookie at this so any help is welcome.
