MicroK8s is a small, fast, secure, certified Kubernetes distribution that installs on just about any Linux box. It provides the functionality of core Kubernetes components, in a small footprint, scalable from a single node to a high-availability production multi-node cluster. Use it for offline developments, prototyping, testing, CI/CD. It's also great for appliances - develop your IoT apps for K8s and deploy them to MicroK8s on your boxes.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.

sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
