When Checkmk is used on on the Checkmk Appliance 1.6 or newer, it is necessary to update the appliance sidebar snapin.

Previous Checkmk versions displayed the error message 'Failed to render navigation: Traceback (most recent call last): File: "[stdin]", line 2, in IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory' in the sidebar snapin.

Background: The Checkmk Appliance firmware 1.6 migrates the internal software stack to Python 3.7 which makes it incompatible with the previous snapin. This change makes it possible to use Checkmk on older and newer appliance firmware.
