Bug Description

When the track is not specified, latest is used. For example, it is possible to install with:

sudo snap install u1test-snap-with-tracks --channel edge

which would be the same as:

sudo snap install u1test-snap-with-tracks --channel edge

However, when using build-snaps in snapcraft, if I write:

build-snaps: [u1test-snap-with-tracks/edge]

it will fail with:

    return store_channels[]['confinement'] == 'classic'
KeyError: 'edge'

To reproduce, build using the snapcraft.yaml from with the latest unreleased snapcraft.

It works when the track is specified:

build-snaps: [u1test-snap-with-tracks/latest/edge]
