Bug Description

Removing a snap triggers the 'Starting scheduled backup' notification then (because I don't have the USB stick plugged in) the `Backup Failed: Error creating directory /media/adam/Adam Eveleigh: Permission denied` dialogue box. I am scheduled a backup, but should this dialogue box be opened every time I remove a snap?

`journalctl -f` output for `snap remove notepad-plus-plus`:

I think this is possibly a Deja Dup bug (so I used `ubuntu-bug deja-dup`) but I've marked it as also affecting snappy for now because it's an interaction bug so might be snappy that needs to be fixed rather than Deja Dup.
