Bug Description

After adding nodejs plugin to the Hugo snap package, which used to build fine for all 6 supported architectures (i386, amd64, armhf, arm64, ppc64el, s390x) on Launchpad snap autobuilder, started failing on ppc64el and s390x with one of the following error messages:

    architecture not supported (ppc64el)

    architecture not supported (s390x)

See for an example.

This error perplexed me initially because it was not obvious from the build log that the error it was coming from the nodejs plugin, and a quick look at showed that nodejs does run on ppc64el and s390x on Ubuntu. I eventually found the "architecture not supported" string inside with the command:

    grep -r "architecture not supported" /snap/snapcraft/

Looking through Node.js's Previous Releases page at , it turns out that "ppc64le" and "s390x" both appear in their regular releases starting in v6.6.0 (September 2016).

I think it should be a good time to add ppc64el and s390x to the list of supported architectures in Link to GitHub pull request will be posted shortly.
