I don't know, you tell me. It has always frustrated me that it is 
physically not possible to package programs to release in the 
repositories. I tried, failed, paid someone to package it and somehow 
still managed to fail! When I started looking into snaps this week it 
seemed to be a much easier process but alas still it does not work and 
nobody seems to be able to tell me why. There does not seem to be any 
documentation on fault finding at all.

The instructions tell me to install snapcraft and build-essential, then 
run snapcraft in the directory for this program. I have done this and 
provided the result here. I do not know anything more to add.
