Bug Description

When I try to upload a snap that doesn't exist, snapcraft just does this:

elopio@remote-devel:~/workspace/canonical/snapcraft⟫ snapcraft upload idontexist
idontexist
elopio@remote-devel:~/workspace/canonical/snapcraft⟫

[Impact]

 * The user does not get an error, making it hard to understand what's going on.

[Test Case]

 * Run snapcraft upload idontexist
 * Check that you get a nice error message

[Regression Potential]

 * Uploads of existing snaps could be affected. Run snapcraft upload /path/to/existing.snap and check that it was uploaded.

Hello Leo, or anyone else affected,

Accepted snapcraft into xenial-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/snapcraft/2.12 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed. In either case, details of your testing will help us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance!
