No, it is very unlikely for a reptile to be able to catch a "mammal" disease - although there certainly are things that infect more than one type of animal, colds and flus probably aren't one of them.

But a pig is a lot closer to human - in terms of physiology and body temperature particularly - than a snake is.

NO NO NO. A snake absolutely cannot catch a human cold or flu.
