@m_m I’m running Ubuntu on my other drive. I literally just installed Pop_OS! so I can check from a simple starting configuration should I run into the problem again and you could build up to the same point of failure.
I don’t use snap installs at all, but it seems the installer sees that snap is installed and starts to use that. I always use
apt install for my package installs. (Call me old fashioned.) For the most part, probably because I don’t understand them, snaps dont ever seen to work for me, the 3 times I tried to use them in the past.
But I made no steps to tell the Workbench Installer to use snap.
@ScruffR while, yes I do have a working install of Particle Workbench (On my other OS), there seems to be an underlying state issue with the installer that should probably be handled in its code.
