Hi, apparently this has been reported on Debian's side (Kali gets this package straight from Debian):

It seems like the problem is solved in that later version of snapd in Debian unstable, the version 2.51.7-1.

I imported the package from Debian unstable into Kali rolling, so for anyone having this issue, updating your Kali install should fix it:

apt update && apt -y upgrade

@Uknown thanks a lot for the report!
