Is there anyway to install snap on Debian? I have tried apt-get install snapd, with no luck. Any help is greatly appreciated.


The snapd package is only available on debian Stretch an debian Sid , it cannot be installed through apt.

Install snapd on Debian:

On Debian snapd is available as part of the testing (currently ‘stretch’) and unstable (‘sid’) versions. It is currently not available in any stable version but will be soon

  • @Tyler can you edit your question by adding the output of cat /etc/apt/sources.list , please. I think you have a mixed source Debian/Ubuntu. – GAD3R Jun 12 '17 at 20:48
