What don't you like about Ubuntu, the UI or under the hood? If its the UI, you won't like Fedora as by default they both use the Gnome Desktop, its just that Fedora has less features by default. If its under the hood (I.E. how the package manager works), then you won't like Mint as Mint is more or less a skin of Ubuntu.

As with all things Linux, there is no such thing as better, but more the right tool for the job. Personally, I've had my best experiences on Fedora in terms of stability and I actually like vanilla Gnome, so that's what I tend to use, but there are times when Mint or something else makes more sense.

They're polar opposites, Mint is more a long term support distro and was shocked to see it using the 5.15 kernel.  Not necessarily a bad thing, but there has been a ton of improvements in CPU support and networking since that kernel.

 

Fedora is cutting edge, it gets newer hardware support a lot sooner and should get the 6.9 kernel soon which as I understand has yet more improvements for modern Intel CPUs.

 

As a new user though, people usually recommend Mint.  I went hard-mode when I made the switch, as I had already been playing with Linux for years as a router and volunteering for a charity that used Linux on recycled PCs.

Router:  Intel N100 (pfSense) + GL.iNet GL-X3000/ Spitz AX WiFi6: Zyxel NWA210AX (1.7Gbit peak at 160Mhz)
WiFi5: Ubiquiti NanoHD OpenWRT (~500Mbit at 80Mhz) Switches: Netgear MS510TXUP, MS510TXPP, GS110EMX
ISPs: Zen Full Fibre 900 (~930Mbit down, 115Mbit up) + Three 5G (~800Mbit down, 115Mbit up)

Alright, that's the one part of Ubuntu that Mint did decide to remove, they don't use the snap daemon that was giving you errors. Both of these would do alright then, try them both in the live environments to see which you prefer.
