Bug Description

I tried to uninstall the notes snap without noticing it was still running on the desktop:

$ sudo snap remove notes
[|] Remove security profile for snap "notes"
error: cannot perform the following tasks:
- Remove snap "notes" from the system (remove /snap/notes/100001/bin/Notes: read-only file system)

That resulted in an error that now prevents me either removing it or reinstalling it.

The only workaround was to wipe out the whole snappy installation.

Changed in snappy:
status: New → Confirmed
