Cannot boot systemd and snapd

Asked by Matus

I switched to Feren OS and I installed Cubic. I downloaded Ubuntu Server 20.04.2 ISO, I opened Cubic, changed some params at name, ISO file name and then, I went to the chroot terminal and i tried to remove subiquity, because I wanted to install normal Ubiquity/Calamares. But when I type snap remove subiquity, it will give you a error message: **cannot communicate with server: Post http://localhost/v2/snaps/subiquity: dial unix /run/snapd.socket: connect: no such file or directory.** Can you fix it, please?

Cubic PPA (cubic-wizard) said :

Generally, services do not run in the Terminal environment. The Terminal environment is a simply a container where you have root privileges to safely modify the files you want/need to without affecting your host system. Usually, services manage and modify files. In this case, you would have to do that your self. Usually, it isn't that difficult, but snapd is another story.

Nevertheless, you ~may~ get ~some~ services to run like this (example for samba):

    $ /usr/sbin/smbd --daemon &

Unfortunately, I have not been able to get Snap to work.


Does Calamares have a Flatpak version?...

If so, one thing I could suggest is t completely remove snapd...

$ sudo apt purge snapd gnome-software-plugin-snap

This will also remove all of your Snaps including the subiquity snap.

Then install the Flatpak version of Calamares.

Can you help with this problem?
