Bug Description

The snappy team released a new 2.0.6 micro release that we want SRU into xenial. The new process described in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SnapdUpdates was used and we have done integration-tests on the snappy images, autopkgtests on classic and unit tests.

The following automatic tests are run:
- travis unit tests https://travis-ci.org/snapcore/snapd/branches (check for 2.0.6 here)
- jenkins autopkgtests http://162.213.35.179:8080/job/snappy-by-tag-autopkgtest/1/
- jenkins integration tests: http://162.213.35.179:8080/job/snappy-by-tag-integration-test/1/

The following additional tests were performed:
"""
- adt-buildvm-ubuntu-cloud
- customize the resulting image: "sudo apt install snapd && sudo snap install hello-world && hello-world.env && sudo snap remove hello-world" (ensures the base image has the old debs and the daemon has some state)
- adt-run --source snapd_2.0.6.dsc --- adt-virt-qemu adt-xenial-amd64-cloud.img: PASS
"""
This included the upgrade from 2.0.5 as part of the autopkgtest run. There are also various snaps installed/removed (including installing and running ubuntu-calculator-app in xvfb) and run as part of the auto pkg test, including reboots to ensure that the system keeps working over reboots.

After installing the new snapd it was ensured that apt is unaffected by doing:
"""
- sudo apt install -y hello && sudo apt remove -y hello
"""

After installing the new snapd gnome-software was used:
"""
- install "gnome-photos" (deb) and remove it again
- install "http" (snap) and remove it again
"""
All worked as expected.
