sudo apt install snapd
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package snapd is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'snapd' has no installation candidate

Solution, delete the preference to disable snapd

sudo rm /etc/apt/preferences.d/nosnap.pref
