Hello Sergio, or anyone else affected,

Accepted snapcraft into xenial-proposed. The package will build now and
be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/snapcraft/2.8.8b in
a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package.  See
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to
enable and use -proposed.  Your feedback will aid us getting this update
out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug,
mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag
from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the
bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to
verification-failed.  In either case, details of your testing will help
us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification .  Thank you in

  apt in yakkety no longer creates partial

Status in Snapcraft:
  In Progress
Status in python-apt package in Ubuntu:
Status in snapcraft package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in snapcraft source package in Xenial:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  This now fails: http://paste.ubuntu.com/16208927/
  With an error that looks like http://paste.ubuntu.com/16208917/

  If 'partial' is created in `downloaddir` then it works again


   * Users of yakkety won't be able to build snaps with stage packages.

   * Users of xenial are not affected.

  [Test Case]

  Build a snap with stage packages:
   * apt get install snapcraft snapcraft-examples
   * mkdir /tmp/mosquitto
   * cp /usr/share/doc/snapcraft-examples/examples/mosquitto/* /tmp/mosquitto
   * cd /tmp/mosquitto
   * snapcraft

  A snap must be generated.

  [Regression Potential]

   * The fix in yakkety could affect the version in xenial.
