Snap store not working

snap store in 20.04 not working . it returns “snap-confine has elevated permissions and is not confined but should be. Refusing to continue to avoid permission escalation attacks: Operation not permitted” while trying to run it through terminal . any solution?

whats the output of:

snap version

your kernel is three versions outdated … does it work if you upgrade ?
