Atom 1.54.0 (snap) not working on Ubuntu 18.04.5



My atom stopped working when it upgraded to 1.54.0
The process starts but dies immediately.

Doing sudo snap revert atom --revision 265 to revert to 1.53.0 made it work again.
Doing sudo snap revert atom --revision 270 to go to 1.54.0 breaks atom.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Upgrade atom to 1.54.0 via snap
  2. Try to run atom on the terminal. Process starts but dies right away.

Expected behavior:

I expected atom to open

Actual behavior:

Atom doesn’t open
