Ubuntu (Ubuntu 20.04 LTS) recently have gotten notorious with their snap packages (such as Chromium). They are a pain to load. This is what I am doing to keep them at bay. Anyone has any better ideas?
sudo rm -rf /var/cache/snapd/
sudo apt autoremove --purge snapd gnome-software-plugin-snap
rm -fr ~/snap
# (OPTIONAL) Following command will make sure snapd does not get installed again as a dependency
# Downside is that you will get an error if you try to install certain packages
# those come only as snaps
sudo apt-mark hold snapd
