I installed multiple snap apps in Kubuntu 19.10 which functioned normally for a couple of weeks until today. Now when I open snap apps from the dock, icons have a question mark and when opened, the error message is: Unknown application folder

When I search for the snap apps in the menu, none show. However, when I do snap list, all the snap applications are listed. In the terminal, kdenlive appears to be installed. When I search for the application, it doesn't appear, only the snap directory for the application appears.

How may I troubleshoot this?

It turns out I had to restart my computer - three times that is. Snap apps are working properly now.
