Dan, if the download you are referring to is a refresh, note you can rate limit *auto*-refreshes (that is, non-interactive refreshes) via `snap system set refresh.rate-limit <some limit>`. For interactive refreshes and installs, you can replace them with a `snap download` followed by a `snap ack` and a `snap install`, and `snap download` will leave a .partial file if you interrupt it.
The problem with having snapd itself leave a partial file when the user has explicitly cancelled a manual install or refresh is that it's impossible to know when leaving the partial is the right thing to do. There are a couple of ideas going around as to how we _could_ make this better, but there's no solid way of doing it, they're both fiddly, and fall apart in some situations meaning there'd have to be a way of tuning the behaviour, which just makes the whole thing a mess. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1790964 Title: snap does not resume unfinished downloads To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/snapd/+bug/1790964/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
