I (almost) never want to install snaps, and if I do by mistake, almost always end up uninstalling and reinstalling a proper version.
Not being able to turn
jupyter over a network share (the latter also installs loads of duplicate python) is never going to work for me. In work I could probably completely disable snaps, but at home there are a few things I might want.
I'm running 18.04 at home and 20.04 in work, so would appreciate answers for both. I'm getting quicker at realising what's wrong when I install something and get unhelpful errors, but the installation, uninstallation, and reinstallation all wastes time.
Software center doesn't say (clearly) if it's installing a snap (tested with jupyter on 18.04), neither seemingly does apt (tested with pdftk on 18.04 and 20.04).
Is there anything I can do to interrupt the snap installer or warn when it's called?
