Hi, I’m having trouble getting the Easy Installer on my Purism laptop (Debian fork I think). I thought I had Snap installed correctly, but when I run
sudo snap install easy-installer --beta
I receive the message:
error: cannot perform the following tasks:
- Mount snap “easy-installer” (21) (snap “easy-installer” assumes unsupported features: snapd2.43 (try to update snapd and refresh the core snap))
So, I try:
sudo apt update
And I receive:
Hit:1 https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com stable InRelease
**Hit:2 https://wire-app.wire.com/linux/debian stable InRelease **

I’m obviously very green at everything I’m trying to do. I bought two Samsung S9+'s as once I saw the “Easy Installer”, I thought it would be great quickly get the /e/ software installed. It took me several weeks to install the OS on a couple of OnePlus phones previously. After hitting this roadblock on pretty much step one of the Easy Installer route, it’s not looking good. I know it’s not e-foundation’s fault, but man this stuff is still really tricky and finicky. It’s still so far from being easy,or even easier than following all the complicated manual steps like I did with the OnePlus phones.
