Snapd 2.23.6 is now the latest stable version of the daemon, available for all supported Ubuntu releases. It brings robustness improvements to the configuration hook system by implementing a 5-minute timeout for the configure hook, along with the ability to report any failure.
Additionally, Snapd 2.23.6 fixes the interfaces-cups-control component for the upcoming Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus) operating system, renames the file that contains the snap-confine AA profile to “workaround dpkg,” and updates the snapstate to restart when needed if the core or kernel snap was relinked.
Snapd 2.23.6 makes it possible for upgrades to always be installed by ignoring any configure hook failures on core refresh. To install it on a supported Ubuntu Linux operating system, run the following command in the Terminal app. Check out the GitHub release notes for more details on the new changes and if you want to download the source tarball.
