So I decided to try things, except I’m running on a snap in Debian.
Looking at this:
so I tried things and got:
root@my-debian:~# snap install lxd
error: cannot perform the following tasks:
- Mount snap “core” (3887) ([start snap-core-3887.mount] failed with exit status 1: Job for snap-core-3887.mount failed.
See “systemctl status snap-core-3887.mount” and “journalctl -xe” for details.
root@my-debian:~# systemctl status snap-core-3887.mount

Reading this it would seem to me that to run LXD on LXD one needs to be on Ubuntu unless there is some other trick to convincing the software to run.
Suggestions - - - - or is it wait until the porting crew has completed their work and one can run lxd natively on debian rather than needing to use snap (although it seems that snap is preferred by the lxd dev crew).
