Can't install Snap Packages

Hello Forum,

with the latest stable update snap packages are supported and I wanted to try it out. But I can't get it working.

Example Package Brave Browser:
when typing sudo snap install brave
I get the output

error: cannot communicate with server: Post http://localhost/v2/snaps/brave: dial unix /run/snapd.socket: connect: no such file or directory

same with snap find
what am I missing?

Also, it was said, that there is a plug-in available for Gnome Software (I'm running Gnome), but I can't get it working there either. I found the "Log in to Ubuntu One" .. but couldn't get passed it.

I appreciate your assistance.

Is snapd installed if yes then is snapd running?

It is installed, but I just noticed that it is apparently not running.

$ systemctl status snapd

● snapd.service - Snappy daemon
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/snapd.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled)
   Active: inactive (dead)

How do I get it going?

systemctl enable --now snapd.apparmor.service
systemctl enable --now snapd.socket


Is it working now... if not then restart your system

systemctl start snapd.apparmor.service

did the trick. Thank you!

run systemctl enable --now snapd.socket also... it will enable snapd at boot

after today's update snapd is disabled for some reason
