Bionic host reboot 10min

Snap lxd 4 on fresh bionic bare metal host.

The only thing running during that time is

$ systemctl list-jobs
468 snap.lxd.daemon.service            stop  running

It doesn’t matter if i manually lxd stop all containers prior to shutdown now -r or reboot command.

Modified /etc/systemd/system.conf but this did not help either, still 10min.


think it might relate to this one

This is the report. Note the link to Launchpad for the snapd report where the fix is taking place.
If I understand correctly, it relates to LXD VMs, so if you have a LXD VM running and shutdown the computer, then it takes 10 minutes to shutdown the host. If that is the case, then a workaround for now is to lxc stop vm1 before shutting shown.

Currently, Ubuntu 18.04 LTS has 2.42.1+18.04. The fix will likely make it into snapd 2.44.3.

As i wrote, it does not matter in my case if containers or VM are running. Tested with all off and just containers on and VM off. Waiting on a shutdown as we speak but i did

snap set lxd daemon.debug=true
systemctl reload snap.lxd.daemon

And will check the /var/snap/lxd/common/lxd/logs once i am back up.

No idea how this releases work, yes i am on 2.44.1 now, looks like 2.44.2 is next, wondering how long the release of the fix will take.
Do you think its wise and know a way or can point me to the direction so that i can manually upgrade to snapd to 2.44.3?

If your host is running Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, then you should have 2.42.1+18.04. You verify with apt policy snapd. But you mention 2.44.1; can you double-check?

You can also cross-reference that with

You can find the latest deb package of snapd for a certain distribution at (for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS).

On Ubuntu 20.04 I currently have 2.44.2+20.04, and the above URL says that I should be getting 2.44.3+20.04 really really soon. I can verify that the new package is almost there, because I can see it at I got that link after clicking to download the deb package at

I do not think it is wise to use the Ubuntu 20.04 snapd package on Ubuntu 18.04. I haven’t tried to test such a thing.

If you first sudo systemctl stop snap.lxd.daemon, does the reboot still takes 10 minutes?

$ cat /etc/lsb-release

$ snap --version
snap    2.44.1
snapd   2.44.1
series  16
ubuntu  18.04
kernel  4.15.0-96-generic

Nah, was rather thinking of a ppa or a way to apply the diff and compile the whole thing, guess i wait since i never done this.

Thanks, that worked! I had shutdown all container/vm first.
