Hi Fabio!
  As Pat already wrote, you should build it using xenial +
stable-phone-overlay PPA. The reason for this is that the
webapp-container in xenial is too old and doesn't support being run
inside a snap.

Also, in general, when using the ubuntu-app-platform snap (the
webapp-helper part is using it) one should build the snap in
xenial+overlay in order to make sure that he's using the same library
versions as those provided by the ubuntu-app-platform snap.
