I recently did a clean install of Linux Mint 18.3 here (March 26)
which is based on Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus). I installed the
chirp-snapshort repository just as you did. The Update Manager has
shown a new CHIRP daily build ready to be installed every morning
after there has been a new build released. After installing the
updates with Update Manager, I am always at the latest CHIRP daily
build. I am currently at CHIRP daily-20180412.

I also had no issues before I upgraded my previous Linux Mint 17.3
system which is based on Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr).
