Ubuntu 18.04: cannot locate the core or legacy core snap


#1

I think I probably closed a snapcraft cli without exiting first on my ubuntu 18.04 computer. After that it would only restart with me in some wierd snap environment. After screwing around with grub I got the computer restarting properly and I uninstalled all snap apps and snap.

Then I installed snap and firefox. When I try to run firefox I get this error.

cannot locate the core or legacy core snap (current symlink missing?): No such file or directory


#2

Did you remove snapd in the process?


#3

How did you ‘uninstall all snap apps and snap’, and what was the output when you ‘installed snap and firefox’?


#4

OK, I’m back online. To keep it short…

Since this issue began I have had at last one sudo apt upgrade

I just did sudo snap install firefox
Firefox installed and is now working.

Thanks to all for your help. I’m really excited about snap!
