Problem installing Riseup-VPN via Snap

Hello, I have encountered a problem when installing riseup-vpn via snap, in appvm in my qubes os.

I created a minimal debian-11 template and installed security enhancements from the kicksecure team into it, then I installed the packages qubes-core-agent-networking and snapd along with qubes-snapd-helper. After that I started installing riseup vpn with snap install --classic riseup-vpn and at the end I keep getting an error:

user@sys-vpn:~$ sudo snap install --classic riseup-vpn
2022-05-16T22:05:13-04:00 INFO Waiting for automatic snapd restart…
error: cannot perform the following tasks:

  • Run install hook of “riseup-vpn” snap if present (run hook “install”:

Traceback (most recent call last):

FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘update-desktop-database’

Maybe someone has encountered this? I’ve already tried installing qubes-core-agent-passwordless-root and different versions of python, but I still get the same error.

Thank you.

Try with plain Debian if the same issue is happening. If so → Information Booster might be Available!
