I am experiencing same as @LuigiWriter described in [this thread] (Cannot install "snapd": cannot install snapd snap on a model without a base snap yet).

Any help appreciated. The goal of installing snapd from snap (and not the package manager) is to install opera (which decided snapd wasn’t recent enough, and for a good reason I suppose).
Here’s my attempt at installing opera (it sucks the download snap isn’t cached somewhere, an immediate reinstall would re-download the whole package)
ychaouche#ychaouche-PC 17:30:33 ~/CalibreLibrary $ snap install opera error: cannot perform the following tasks: - Mount snap "opera" (181) (snap "opera" assumes unsupported features: snapd2.43 (try to update snapd and refresh the core snap)) - Download snap "gtk-common-themes" (1534) from channel "stable" (unexpected EOF) ychaouche#ychaouche-PC 18:03:56 ~/CalibreLibrary $
