in another thread it was mentioned that on ubuntu 18.10 installing lxd with apt really performs a snap install of lxd. i have not yet studied how snap works so i don’t know. does this mean that looking up the list of files that will be installed using apt-file will give the wrong list or otherwise fail? or is this a broader issue by canonical that will break lots of package management tools that currently understand only the various repository files?
can i download the .deb file for lxd on 18.10 from somewhere? can i install it where there is no internet connected?
