unbuntu LXC antlet & snap


I tried to install a snap package on an ubuntu LXC antlet. I manually upgraded to bionic and installed snapd. But while trying to install the hello-world snap I get the following error:

error: system does not fully support snapd: cannot mount squashfs image using "squashfs": mount:
/tmp/sanity-mountpoint-270681490: mount failed: Operation not permitted.

Did anyone manage to install snaps on an antlet?

I came across the same problem - did you find a solution?

Unfortunately I am hitting this too. I have Nano, and want to use free "Let's Encrypt" certs to protect website on a CentOS7 antlet, and Let's Encrypt wants me to install Certbot, which requires snapd to be installed.  It appears like I have installed snapd with yum, but attempting to use snap gets this error:

snap install core

error: system does not fully support snapd: cannot mount squashfs image using "squashfs": mount:

       /tmp/sanity-squashfs-170670053: failed to setup loop device: No such file or directory


This may have something to do with loopback devices not compiled into the kernel.  If loopback devices were install, this should show something, but it doesn't:

ls  /dev/loop*

ls: cannot access /dev/loop*: No such file or directory



This is for ChromeOS, but maybe it will work?

I recommend doing a snapshot of your antlet first!
