snap install doesn't clearly tell me what it's done after a package install

Bug Description

When running "sudo snap install <foo>", after the package is installed, the command just.... ends.

As a reasonably experienced shell user, I know to do things like look at the exit code, but it would be much nicer if 'snap install' could print a status line at the end of it's run, something like:

"The <foo> package has been installed."
