It is related to apparmor-- the profile 'freedomotic_start.sh_5.6.0' isn't
loaded into the kernel so the aa-exec failed. I looked at your package.yaml and
you are using the defaults (good), and there is nothing more you need to do for
the security policy. What is probably happening is something during the install
is failing prior to the apparmor policy generation.

What I find curious though is that you are using the command
''-- this should be instead. Also the
reported error message shows snappy is using 'aa-exec' instead of
'ubuntu-core-launcher'. Also, the package shouldn't have been able to be in the
half-installed state that it is in now (ie, unpacked, but without generated
security policy, etc). All of this indicates your snappy system is out of date.
