Bug Description

The snaps test suite hardcodes amd64 in the expected snap name, so when it is run in a different architecture it will fail.

ERROR: demos_tests.test_busybox.BusyBoxTestCase.test_busybox
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/tmp/adt-run.SFkaMi/build.WRd/real-tree/snaps_tests/demos_tests/", line 26, in test_busybox

 * No visible impact for users.

 * Fixing this test will get us closer to have green executions in autopkgtests in all the platforms.

[Test Case]

 * Run the autopkgtests in a platform that's not amd64,

[Regression Potential]

 * This could make fail the tests in amd64. But as it's in an autopkgtest, any regression will block the new version to get to proposed.

This bug doesn't affect users. I'm marking it as verification done.

We still have failures in other architectures, but this test is now passing. Other bugs are open to address the remaining issues.

Thanks Brian!
