Installed Wickr Me via the regular software center (so, as a snap). It's the latest version as listed on their website (5.77.12). After installing it, when clicking on the app, it doesn't launch. It doesn't show up as an active process in the system monitor, and there aren't any error messages either. Rebooting Ubuntu doesn't help.

Details of my Ubuntu installation below. Anyone else experience this? Any fix? I've contacted Wickr support but they don't respond.

Kernel : Linux 5.8.0-50-generic (x86_64)
Version : #56~20.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 12 21:46:35 UTC 2021
C Library : GNU C Library / (Ubuntu GLIBC 2.31-0ubuntu9.2) 2.31
Distribution : Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS

They updated the snap packages and it seems Wickr Me does not run on Ubuntu 20.04 anymore. Last time switching back to beta channel did work, because the actual version on beta channel was 5.47.25. It seems that was the last version which worked with Ubuntu 20.04.

But now the beta channel got updated to version 5.76.13 which does not run on Ubuntu 20.04. So changing the release channel does not help anymore and currently all version which are installable via snap do not run on this distribution.

If you try to run wickrme from terminal it gives error message: Illegal instruction (core dumped)
