Error while removing snap lxd

Am trying to remove snap lxd, but getting this error msg:
" Save data of snap “lxd” in automatic snapshot set #5 (cannot create archive: tar: common/lxd/disks/master11.img: file changed as we read it (and 1 more))"

You should delete all your instances, images, networks and storage pools prior to attempting removal of the package or snapd will try to be nice and make a backup for you, which will take forever and can hit that kind of error.

(We wish there was a way for us to opt out of that backup/snapshot thing but that’s currently not an available option)
