Any hints about how to resolve below? Not sure what the implications are of this or if it will impact system performance. I've included the output from systemctl status snapd.seeded.service below the output from the apt-get upgrade. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!!

output from apt-get upgrade;

Here's the output from systemctl status snapd.seeded.service

You might try running sudo snap install hello-world and see if that installs the Snap Core. After doing that mine seems to be working now.

  • Thanks, it installed the snap core, but didn't resolve the problem. I am going to have to look into snaps more. snap list shows the core, and hello-world are the only two snaps installed on my system, after running sudo snap install hello-world, which leads me to believe neither were installed when snapd upgrade issue happened. I am guessing snapd refers to a daemon, but I don't know. Thanks for your suggestion.

I just stumbled upon this today, but managed to fix the problem by rebooting via typing systemctl reboot into the terminal.
