First a question for clarity: is this apparmor issue related to having
libreoffice installed as a snap, or is this native to the archive
version as well?

Second: I honestly can't grasp these kind of policy changes are rolled
out without having the slightest idea on what impact this might cause on
the installed base (which, as is clearly shown with the recent
discussion on capturing data during installation, is a given fact). I
use ZFS for my Documents, others might have a btrfs subvol, a separate
filesystem, data on a NAS, or removable storage. This just breaks
because we did apt-get upgrade on a current stable release of Ubuntu
(yet we won't get LO6 on Xenial or Artful). This to me seems
unacceptable and annoying to say the least.

If confinement has become a must-have, a decent file access interface
that allows the user to provide access (as we do on phones) is a must-
have. At least make sure the error is captured properly so we know what
to do.
