Restarting freezes due to snap
I have Ubuntu 22.04 Dell laptop.
It freezes on restarts before I get to the disk encryption password.
Looking at the restart log, I get:
Could not detach /dev/dm-0. Device or resource busy
Looking at the system log, I found that this is due to snap:
Sep 01 09:28:38 machine-Precision-5570 systemd-udevd: dm-0: Process '/usr/bin/unshare -m /usr/bin/snap auto-import --mount=/dev/dm-0' failed with exit code 1.
I tried googling but I can’t find anything that’s relevant.
This is a bug in Ubuntu:
The workaround is to delete
/lib/udev/rules.d/66-snapd-autoimport.rules This resolves the snapd error in journal, but I’m still not getting a clean shutdown.
It appears the issue might be another bug:
I was able to resolve this issue by going back to an older kernel. I was running 6.2.0-32-generic. When I switched to 5.19-50-generic, the issue went away.
I made it permanent by following this answer: https://askubuntu.com/a/1000735/433791
sudo cp /etc/default/grub /etc/default/grub.bak sudo vi /etc/default/grub
Add the following 2 lines to the file
Then update the boot file:
Restart, then press "esc" when at the manufacturer logo. From the boot menu, select "Advanced" then select the kernel you want. That kernel will now be loaded at boot / restart.
