  Language pack installation improvements for 16.04

Status in Ubuntu GNOME:
Status in gnome-control-center package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  In 15.10 we landed the initial implementation of language pack
  installation into the gnome-control-center region panel. There are a
  few things that could use further improvement.

  - The packagekit dialog silently times out, if the dpkg/apt databases are locked, we should detect this and warn the user
  - The "Install Languages" dialog lists all known languages and variants, sometime these don't much to available translations, we should filter this list to only show languages i.e. use "en" and not "en_US"
  - It would be nice if the packagekit pop-up were instead a modal dialog, however currently aptdaemon does not support this.
