Description of problem:
This problem happens on Fedora 30, latest kernel, when I use the Gnome Store to remove the Snap-Package of Rambox.

I removed it, since the package seems not to work at all, at least I'm not able to start it, so I'm suspecting SELinux to be the culprit. A friend with who installed Fedora 30 from scratch does not appear to have this problem.
SELinux is preventing snapd from 'rmdir' accesses on the directory snap.rambox.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that snapd should be allowed rmdir access on the snap.rambox directory by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# ausearch -c 'snapd' --raw | audit2allow -M my-snapd
# semodule -X 300 -i my-snapd.pp
