That's a detail I forgot. lxc has remotes, they have the container
images that you launch. So when you say ubuntu:xenial, it means that
it will launch the xenial image from the ubuntu remote. You can see
the remotes you have configured with:

$ lxc remote list

The zesty image is not in the ubuntu remote, so the right command is:

$ sudo lxc launch ubuntu-daily:zesty

Sorry about that, and thanks for catching it!

Another detail I missed is that if you want to run a snap inside a lxc
container, you have to install squashfuse in there first:

$ sudo apt install squashfuse

pura vida
