I have just installed PuTTY with sudo apt-get install putty command. But when I try to run it, I immediatelly receive Segmentation fault (core dumped) error. Why is this happening?

I recommend you check the system software then retry.

Here's the procedure:

sudo apt-get remove putty
  • Open Software Updater and let it check for updates. If there are any, let it apply them, including reboots as necessary.

  • Then run it again just to make sure there are no updates to the updates.

Then go through this sequence of commands:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get clean

sudo apt-get install putty

Then try it again.

FYI, I just checked the Snap Store for Putty


And it reports there is not a Snap version available.
