The short answer is yes, you'll need to rebuild your snap if you need to update a dependency. However, there's a longer answer here, too. Say you have some application that uses SSL (could be some embedded software or a full-blown website using Apache). You do your research and utilize specific key exchange and symmetric algorithms. Now say a security ...

I don't think that snaps check what dependencies are already installed. It just includes all of its dependencies and runtime (which is partly why the LibreOffice snap is 287 MB and the flatpak is about 200MB). Snaps include pretty much everything the software needs to run. I don't think anything gets shared between snaps. When a snap updates however, it ...

The first two situations are handled in a clever way. One of the interesting features talked about is deduplication support for content within Snap packages. Snaps would be automatically deduplicated of common files shared between snaps based upon their file hashes. There would be de-duplication on the file-system layer, de-duplication on snap ...

Seems like there's a conflict here for you. Snaps do some great things, but they will, by their very nature, require more space than packages which share dependancies. As much as I hate people who give this response, you'll need to consider if snaps are right for you instead of old fashioned packaging. If you're completely out of options and you really need ...

It seems you have sources defined in you sources.list file that are not present anymore, cause your mentioned llvm repo gives a: APT mirror was temporary switched off due to excess load. We are working on bringing it back. Stay tuned! so you could wait or deactivate the ressource in software-properties-gtk and try the mentioned things again... after ...

Problem I agree with MichaelW that it contains same lib file with same version. However, the error you got is not related that but it is packages version conflict declared in one of the packages: $ dpkg --info Downloads/libsigc++-2.0-0v5_2.4.1-2_amd64.deb ... Conflicts: libsigc++-2.0-0c2a Replaces: libsigc++-2.0-0c2a ... If those lines are removed, we ...

In a snap package, you can simply have two parts: one being your Qt app, the second one being the python script. Parts in snaps are handled by plugins and they make sure everything gets installed in the right place and have what they need. For example could your Qt app be built using the cmake plugin and your python script using the python3 plugin. In short:...
