This file does not exist on an Ubuntu Core system-- guessing you are perhaps
trying to write to it? If so, / is mounted read-only and so (most of) /etc is
not available for writing (see the developer docs[1] for details). You should
instead ship this file as part of your snap and adjust your application to use
it instead of /etc/matplotlibrc.
