Update log?


Using Ubuntu (22.04 LTS), I’m trying to find where I can see the log of snap package updates ?

I know about “snap changes” but it only shows what I personally installed/removed, not the updates automatically made by snapd.

I searched for a while on Google for an answer without any luck so I’m posting here.


snap changes does actually show all activities of snapd, no matter if they are manual or automatic… it is a ringbuffer though, so older logs vanish eventually

You are right, I just tested and they do appear.

Is there a way to increase the back log (days) of the “snap changes” ?

Sadly not… you could create some script run by a systemd timer that runs once a day to pipe them into some log file though
