It looks like three different things: password file, sabnzbd.ini, unrar.
Can you please handle one subject per thread?
Now I get the idea that your setup is completely broken, and I would advice you start from scratch.

How would you describe your experienceness with Mint and Linux and snap in general? Why are you using Mint, and not Windows?
