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.
