i am using LXD installed with snap. Till 5 April 22 i wasn’t aware of the fact that snapd is doing auto-updates of all installed snaps. Since the LXD update to version 5, which broke my backup strategy of ‘lxc copy --refresh’ to a remote server, i think about disabling these auto-updates.
I mean this is an Administrators nightmare, unattended updates which could break a whole infrastructure overnight. This time only backups are not possible due to a bug, next time all containers are failing.
Is there a way, you can recommend, to disable updates ? I read about setting timers on snapd which will have to be reset via cron or disabling the snap store with a firewall. How do you handle this topic ?
