Unable to install webdm


#1

Trying to install webdm, I get the following error:

admin@JMNLM42:~$ sudo snap install webdm
error: cannot install “webdm”: Post https://api.snapcraft.io/v2/snaps/refresh: dial tcp: lookup
api.snapcraft.io on [::1]:53: read udp [::1]:34339->[::1]:53: read: connection refused


#2

Two things:

  1. that error is a DNS lookup failure.
  2. I’m not sure webdm is supported any longer (I’ll ask, and if it isn’t I’ll ask to have it unpublished).

Hi
Thank you for your reply

  1. i have tried this on a different internet connection and still same error, why is it a DNS error?
    admin@DDPNM42:~$ snap refresh
    error: cannot refresh: cannot refresh snap-declaration for “uefi-fw-tools”: Get
    https://api.snapcraft.io/api/v1/snaps/assertions/snap-declaration/16/Oulq6jI8qkI4ScWVafl3VsxSsd52HSGu?max-format=2:
    dial tcp: lookup api.snapcraft.io on [::1]:53: read udp

  1. I can use the following instead of point 2

snap install snapweb


#5

it’s a DNS error because that’s what port 53 is.

If i leave it over night powered on I am then able to run snap refresh and also snap install snapweb
