The stage-packages are not installed into the host system, but are unpacked into your snap’s filesystem so that the snap can find them at runtime. Blockquote

stage-packages: blah blah to the YAML, it consistently fails to build. When I remove it, all is well. Is it because I am placing it in the wrong part of the YAML? I am getting REALLY close to success with this snap, so I really appreciate all your help here.
