How To Change Snap Refresh (Update) Schedule

Snap refresh time

Snap packages are set to refresh (update) 4 times per day by default, but this can be changed and this article will show you how.

It should also be noted that automatic updating of snap packages cannot be completely disabled directly from the snapd settings, as there's no option for this (what's up with that?), so if you want to disable this altogether, you'll have to resort to workarounds like blocking the snap update URL, or setting your Internet connection to metered and them using the refresh.metered option to hold the snap refresh process when a metered connection is detected (sudo snap set system refresh.metered=hold).

There's been a long debate over this, and the result is an option to change the snap refresh schedule, but not completely disable it.
