I am having an odd issue and to be honest I am not even sure where to look (say log wise) for what is happening. I have experienced this same issue on Ubuntu Mate 17.10 and now (just playing with it) the nightly release of Ubuntu Mate 18.04 . The issue comes up installing or removing (just two tasks that I know of this happening with)… I just go to the command line and “snap install foo” or “snap install bar” I cant see what happens at the end, but the TASK SEEMS to be successful (install or removal).
THE PROBLEM is that everything shuts down/closes and i am back at the login screen again … I login … and seconds later I am yet again back at the login screen again … the only way to get past this is to reboot.
I dont want to spam my PC specs but basically a Dell Inspiron 5759 with 16GB of ram and an I7 processors (real specs or log files will be provided if asked)… everything seems to run fine say if i am installing a snap … the programs run without issue. I am just curious what in the world is going on.
