I use Ubuntu Studio 20.04 (upgraded from 19.10, upgraded from 18.04).

I discovered, since 18.04, there are a lot of apps from Snap (Gnome Software Center) that Synaptic Package Manager doesn't know, and vice versa.

I thought this had been fixed with the years, but... It is the same, today, with 20.04.

Is it something by default?

Is there something wrong in my configuration?

How could we get both services work side by side?

    Noting is wrong. Synaptics has nothing to do with snap. I son't think it will be ever "fixed".

Both types of packages already do work side-by-side in Ubuntu Software.

Snap Store is deliberately snap-only. It's intended for other distros that don't use debs. You can use it in Ubuntu, but it's still going to be snap-only. Some folks get confused because LOOKS like Ubuntu Software (they both come from the same codebase), but it has a different intended use.

Synaptic is deliberately deb-only. It's intended for all distros that use use debs, and the developers seem to have no interest at the moment in changing that intent.
