[solved] Wrong snapd version in Snap Store


More direct than words:


I know that the most recent snapd version is used. But I don’t know why Snap Store does display 2.48.2. Please not that I did a reboot after snapd 2.49 install.

this is because you are not running snapd from the stable channel (but the snap-store usually picks stable as the default channel to show … you should be able to select another one at the top right when scrolling up):

$ snap info snapd | grep -A4 ^channels
  latest/stable:             2021-02-08 (11036) 32MB -
  latest/candidate: 2.49                 2021-02-19 (11107) 33MB -
  latest/beta:      2.49                 2021-02-10 (11107) 33MB -
  latest/edge:      2.49+git544.g69b7475 2021-03-02 (11338) 33MB -

Hmm there’s something fishy here.

snap list
snapd 2.49 11107 latest/stable canonical✓ snapd

But I get the same snap info as yours. So: ??

$ snap info snapd | grep ^tracking
tracking:     latest/stable

and yours ?

EDIT … oops, ignore that, i’m blind

$ snap info snapd | grep ^tracking
tracking:     latest/stable

Yeah, seems the new update is rolling out … the store does that in chunks and you have won the lottery :wink:

(all the tools will only officially show the new version once the rollout is complete … thus the inconsistency)

That snap stuff is too subtle for me after a day at work. :joy:
