Ubuntu – Unable to contact snap store


I installed Ubuntu 18.04 yesterday. Today I tried to install micro editor through snap, but it doesn't work. Any command like this sudo snap install hello-world freezes for a minute and I receive

error: unable to contact snap store

Is there some problem with the snap store or is it because I couldn't connect to it from my network? How could I check that?

Seems there might be a problem with the snap store this morning. Occasionally I get a successful return.
