After updating Ubuntu to the latest version "Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (Jammy Jellyfish)", I am getting the following warning message whenever I open Mozilla Firefox. How can I stop this notification?

Pending Update of "Firefox Snap", close the app to avoid disruption

Not sure about the correct solution, but the following did the trick for me.

  • Close the Firefox browser if you have opened it.
  • Open the terminal and run the following commands to refresh the snap.

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

sudo snap refresh

This should stop the notification. As per the snap website, "Snaps update automatically, and by default, the snapd daemon checks for updates 4 times a day. Each update check is called a refresh." But it seems that you need a manual refresh to get rid of the notification.
