try installing the nagios plugins right from nagios.org.
extract the package and following instructions in the INSTALL file.

The Nagios SNMP plugin is only installed if your system has the NET-SNMP packages installed.
you can always check your libexec directory to see if the plugin check_snmp is present.
if not, check if you have installed NET-SNMP and reinstal the Nagios plugins.

Goodluck!

I had the same issue.
In my case the problem was in bad permission settings.
Nagios user must be able to execute the plugin file.
