Hi,

no, it doesn't.

If I click http://ubuntu.mirror.neology.co.za/ubuntu/pool/main/s/snapd/snapd_2.33.1ubuntu2_amd64.deb
the first possible reason mentioned by the Pale Moon browser, as well as
by the Firefox browser is "The site could be temporarily unavailable or
too busy. Try again in a few moments.

You indeed need to run 'sudo apt update' or 'suso apt-get update', take
a look at

[weremouse at moonstudio ~]$ lsb_release -c
Codename:	xenial
[weremouse at moonstudio ~]$ apt list -a snapd
Listing... Done
snapd/xenial-updates,now 2.34.2 amd64 [installed]
snapd/xenial 2.0.2 amd64

The current version is _not_ 2.33.1ubuntu2 it is 2.34.2. However, the
culprit actually is that http://ubuntu.mirror.neology.co.za/ is not
accessible, so running 'sudo apt update' or 'suso apt-get update' won't
help. You either need to be patient and wait that the mirror might get
accessible again, or try using another mirror.

Those are all error messages you posted, so use another mirror.
