Would anyone happen to know why the tracks in the snap version of Spotify (Premium) grey out on my laptop after I successfully start any track and any subsequently selected track produces the error message: “This content is not available”? The Spotify web player has no problems playing any track, but Spotify settings are not available via the web player.

So far the only one track I found greyed is “Never change” from the soundtrack of The Thomas Crown Affair by Bill Conti.
But I have it greyed in both the web player and the dedicated player.
BTW, I have a huge disgust in snaps and flatpaks, so I installed Spotify via the .deb package:
curl -sS https://download.spotify.com/debian/pubkey_0D811D58.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb http://repository.spotify.com stable non-free" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/spotify.list
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install spotify-client
What if you give it a try?
This should work
Can u try Flatpak Version
I use it,
It works just fine…
After reloading Ubuntu several times I no longer have this problem, so I am pretty sure it had little to do with Spotify. Thank you for your suggestions and I apologize for my tardy response.
