I have installed:

OS: Ubuntu Core 16 
image: (GNU/Linux 4.4.0-1030-raspi2 armv7l)

and I want to install nano

however I can not find it using:

snap find nano-editor

I know the package is available because on:

OS: Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS
HW: Assus Laptop

I can find the package with the command:

snap find nano-editor

Name              Version      Developer             Notes  Summary
nano-editor       2.6.3        rws                   -      The nano text editor

It's because the nano-editor package uploaded by rws was only built for amd64 architecture, and not the arm based arch the pi uses.

I emailed the maintainer of the package and asked them to upload an arm build too.

  • Seem that even some (almost) 2 years later that the armhf architecture is still no available. :( – Larnu Nov 17 '18 at 13:05

Run snap install pinano to solve the problem.

  • Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be better if you explained why this is a solution. – Martin Thornton May 21 '18 at 13:28
