series 16
ubuntu 16.04

Help please !

I tried cleanbuild and same happens this time it stuck at Preparing to build desktop-qt5
Snapcraft process is taking ~30% CPU. Already gave it 30 mins. LOL

Same thing here with Ubuntu 18.04.

Can you try snapcraft from the edge channel and verify it is indeed faster?
