snap connectivity problem from an Ubuntu 18.04 virtual machine?

  • 1.  snap connectivity problem from an Ubuntu 18.04 virtual machine?

    Posted 8 days ago
    I just signed up for an account and set up an Ubuntu 18.04 virtual machine.  I'm running an Ansible playbook that (tries to) install certbot via snaps, as the certbot folks recommend;  the playbook worked on an Ubuntu 20.04 virtual machine in someone else's cloud, but it's failing here at the 'snap install core' step.  Checking snap connectivity, I'm getting

    jim@tlce:~$ snap debug connectivity
    Connectivity status:
    * api.snapcraft.io: unreachable
    error: 1 servers unreachable

    which doesn't sound encouraging.

    As I'm brand new it's quite possible I'm overlooking something.  Any hints?
