With our snapd zesty 2.24 SRU we noticed that the snapcraft rdep has an autopkgtest failure: http://people.canonical.com/~ubuntu-archive/proposed-migration/zesty/update_excuses.html#snapd
Upon investigating it turns out that there is a command:
['sudo', 'apt-get', '--no-install-recommends', '-y', 'install', 'hello=2.10-1']
in there that hardcodes the version of hello. Unfortunately in zesty this version is now

hello needed a rebuild during freeze? Oh well. Can you add @elopio in the tags?
A rebuild is acceptable as it contains no code changes so does not need a freeze exception. Likely it would be done to clear a transition and let something migrate.
No idea how to tag anything, cirtainly cannot find a tag anywhere in this interface.
Yeah, but hello?
That last line sounds funny
For what it’s worth, a PR is coming out shortly, working on it myself.
It was rebuilt to enable PIE. It was done during the freeze because it is
low risk to rebuild the hello package…
