Public bug reported:

When looking at the transition from the awscli deb to the aws-cli snap,
I noticed that the aws-cli snap is a classic snap.

This means that the command shown in command-not-found output does not
actually work:

$ aws

Command 'aws' not found, but can be installed with:

sudo snap install aws-cli
sudo apt  install awscli 

See 'snap info aws-cli' for additional versions.

$ sudo snap install aws-cli
error: This revision of snap "aws-cli" was published using classic confinement
       and thus may perform arbitrary system changes outside of the security
       sandbox that snaps are usually confined to, which may put your system at

       If you understand and want to proceed repeat the command including

It is not ideal that cut-and-pasting the shown command returns an error.

I am not sure that it is better to add the '--classic' flag to the
commandline, since that also encourages users to cut and paste without
necessarily understanding the implications of installing a classic snap.
