Unable to remove zombie snap


A 52 Mb volume is present in my file manager. It is not mounted. I would like to remove it.

My Disk utility says the backing file for it is: /var/lib/snapd/snaps/snapd_17576.snap (deleted)

That file indeed does not exist on disk. The associated device is /dev/loop13.

losetup -d /dev/loop13 does not solve the problem.

How can I solve this issue?

Additional information

$ sudo losetup -a | grep loop13
/dev/loop13: [66309]:1572967 (/var/lib/snapd/snaps/snapd_17576.snap (deleted))

Thank you

This shouldn’t happen, do the problem reproducible after rebooting the system?
