That depends on what type of packages you're wanting to install. The
click store scope will fail to install clicks (at least it did last time
I tried) on a snappy-based image. I'm not sure if/when this will work.

If you're wanting to install snaps via a GUI, you should have the snappy
scope on there assuming the image was generated fairly recently. It
should be in your scopes drawer. You will need to install WebDM from the
cli before it will work, though.

I hope this helps.
