Snap: cannot install core (11606 mount fail)

I'm trying to add HTTPS connection for my website, but i'm stuck with the snap core install... I cannot find where the issue comes from.
Thanks for your help!

My domain is:

I ran this command:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
sudo snap install core

It produced this output:
error: cannot perform the following tasks:

  • Mount snap "core" (11606) ([start snap-core-11606.mount] failed with exit status 1: Job for snap-core-11606.mount failed.
    See "systemctl status snap-core-11606.mount" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

and in journalctl -xe -->

My web server is (include version):

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
Debian GNU/Linux 9.13

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know):

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot):
cannot complete cerbot install :frowning:

It looks like maybe the image of Debian 9 that OVH is providing, lacks the required bits to be able to run snapd.

You have a couple of other options:

  1. (Simplest option) Try install the version of Certbot that comes with Debian Stretch and use that. It's very old, but should still be functional:

    sudo apt-get install certbot python-certbot-nginx
  2. You can also try the pip version of Certbot for a slightly newer version, but on Debian 9 you won't be able to get a completely up-to-date version.

It works :partying_face: :partying_face:
(I used 1st solution)
Thanks a lot for your quick and efficient support! Have a nice day :slight_smile:
