Morning all. I had a very late night yesterday getting my development environment up and running again after installing 20.04, and I ran into a couple of issues that I’m unsure of who/where I should report pertaining to snaps.
Very long story short, I installed 20.04 and I required 3 components to get up and running. Node.js, Dotnet-Sdk and Docker.
Installed all snaps and immediately had issues.
When building my app with dotnet I was stumped by the error:
“Process terminated. Couldn’t find a valid ICU package installed on the system/ Set the configuration flag System.Globalisation.Invariant to true if you want to run with no globalization support.”
Worse yet, the dotnet-sdk is not available in MS repos yet (even though their documentation claims it to be so) so for now, the snap is the only reasonable path.
So to recap. Docker snap works absolutely fine. Dotnet-sdk snap has a dependency issue when building and the node snap looks like it has some sort of permissions issue which I don’t have the experience to suss out exactly why it breaks.
Now, who should I report this to in order to be a good, if sleepy, samaritan?
I don’t have much experience with .NET so I hope I’m not saying something stupid here, but which MS repos and which documentation are you referring to? As far as I can see they support .NET up to Ubuntu 19.10:
Ah, just found the following page. I guess Microsoft are currently in the process of rolling out support for Ubuntu 20.04, that’s why the instructions here don’t work (yet?). Perhaps wait for a few days.
