No, I haven’t (and wouldn’t know how).
Output of `snap interfaces` during `snap install wekan` Edit (2.4 KiB, text/plain)
The Apparmor denial seems to no longer occur with 2.31.1.
`snap interfaces` lists ’wekan’ connected to network and network-bind, but not hardware-observe. I’m struggling with the correct syntax for manually connecting it to anything:
root@saegusa:~# snap connect wekan :hardware-observe
error: cannot resolve connection, plug snap name is empty
root@saegusa:~# snap connect wekan:wekan :hardware-observe
error: snap ”wekan” has no plug named ”wekan”
root@saegusa:~# snap connect wekan: :hardware-observe
error: invalid value: ”wekan:” (want snap:name or snap)
root@saegusa:~# snap connect :wekan :hardware-observe
error: cannot resolve connection, plug snap name is empty
`snap interfaces` does list a ’wekan:mongodb-plug’, which (if I’m reading the output right) is unattached. Attempting to connect that to hardware observe:
root@saegusa:~# snap connect wekan:mongodb-plug :hardware-observe
error: cannot connect wekan:mongodb-plug (”content” interface) to core:hardware-observe
There’s also a ’wekan:mongodb-slot’. Attempting to connect mongodb-plug to that:
root@saegusa:~# snap connect wekan:mongodb-plug wekan:mongodb-slot
error: snap ”wekan” has ”install-snap” change in progress
That’s true, since I’m only able to see those two during the time that the installation is stuck.
I’ll attach the full output of `snap interfaces` below. It’s the same output that `snap interfaces` produces on the VM without the issue (after installation, when the service is running).
As for the other question, there are wekan-related commands running when it’s stuck (listing below). The service seems to be up and running already (I can open it in a browser) for the time it remains in the configuration phase, but when the hook times out it of course gets cancelled and the installation is undone.

Update: got snapd 2.31.1 from -proposed this morning, and replaced the customized /etc/apparmor.d/usr.lib.snapd.snap-confine.real with the package-provided version. This did not fix the issue unfortunately.
Since some time over the holidays I’ve had problems refreshing/installing the Wekan snap  on my home server and also my desktop. The installation stalls at the configuration phase, which on the surface looks a bit like bug #1674193 , but here core gets installed just fine, and the hang occurs just alike if I first install just core, then the `wekan` snap separately.
14.52 jani@saegusa:~$ sudo snap install wekan
[sudo] salasana henkilölle jani:
error: cannot perform the following tasks:
– Run configure hook of ”wekan” snap if present (run hook ”configure”: <exceeded maximum runtime of 5m0s>)
Installing other snaps works (the couple that I tried just to be able to say this did anyway).
I’ve reported this on the Wekan snap Github page , but there’s been no confirmation from anyone else affected so far. Also, I’m unable to reproduce this myself in a VM and on at least one other (physical) desktop I have access to.
So naturally I’ve looked for differences between these systems, but so far the only correlating one I’m pretty sure of is an Apparmor denial:
apparmor=”DENIED” operation=”open” profile=”snap.wekan.mongodb” name=”/sys/block/” pid=9478 comm=”mongod” requested_mask=”r” denied_mask=”r” fsuid=0 ouid=0
The two systems where Apparmor denies mongodb’s access to /sys/block get stuck at the configure hook, whereas systems that don’t deny access finish the configuration (and installation) successfully.
I have not tweaked any Apparmor configuration on any of these systems prior to this issue cropping up (not that I can remember anyway). I’ve also not touched anything snap-related, as Wekan was one of the first snaps I’ve ever tried and is (or would be) the only one (besides core) currently installed on these systems.
All systems are running Ubuntu 16.04, with my (affected) desktop having both HWE and -proposed enabled, my (affected) server running a 4.4-series kernel (no HWE or -proposed) and the other (unaffected) desktop having HWE but no -proposed. The (unaffected) VM starts with kernel 4.4 and remains unaffected if I upgrade it with HWE.
I’m submitting this from the (HWE+proposed-enabled) desktop, so any logs attached here are from one of the two affected systems. I’ll of course provide other logs too if requested.

When I try to install the snap (in Ubuntu 16.04), it gets stuck in
Run configure hook of "wekan" snap if present. At this time Wekan service is already up and running, but snapd gives up on the configuration after a (built-in) 5 minute timeout and undoes the installation. (I initially thought the Node process was misbehaving, but I no longer think that’s the case here.)
Wekan snap issue #10 seems like the same problem. I enabled snap debugging as mentioned there, and will attach the result of
grep snapd from during the installation attempt here.
While the service is up during the configuration phase, it produces journal log entries as usual and I’m attaching the relevant lines here.
I’ve tried purging and reinstalling snapd, disabling IPv6, turning off Apache and any other services that might be in the way (though none of them have caused issues previously), rebuilding the snap with my previous settings built in but none of it has made any difference.
In addition to my main server, I’ve since reproduced this on my desktop machine, and failed to reproduce it on another desktop and a VM with a fairly clean Ubuntu 16.04 install. The only difference between the reproducing and non-reproducing systems I’ve so far found is an Apparmor denial in
apparmor="DENIED" operation="open" profile="snap.wekan.mongodb" name="/sys/block/" pid=9478 comm="mongod" requested_mask="r" denied_mask="r" fsuid=0 ouid=0
The systems where Apparmor denies mongodb’s access to /sys/block get stuck at the configure hook, whereas systems that don’t report a denial finish the configuration (and installation) successfully.
I haven’t done any customization of Apparmor rules on any of these that I can remember; it’s pretty much dark arts to me which is why I’ve avoided touching it.
