Description Cyril Pascal 2021-09-01 13:18:59 UTC
snapd daemon program seems to be incompatible with squashfs 4.5

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install snapd : emerge -av snapd
2. launch snapd daemon : systemctl enable --now snapd
3. snap install hello 
Actual Results:  
snap install fails with error "snap is unusable due to missing files"

Expected Results:  
snap should install the package

Same here at debian :
snapd fix

Temporary fix is to emerge =sys-fs/squashfs-tools-4.4_p1 instead of current stable =sys-fs/squashfs-tools-4.5

This was a show stopper for me and the above linked patch does fix the issue. There is also a discussion about the issue that shows the same "missing files" error.
