rsync is a fast and versatile file-copying tool which can copy locally
and to/from a remote host. It offers many options to control its behavior,
and its remote-update protocol can minimize network traffic to make
transferring updates between machines fast and efficient.
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.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
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.
