Description of Ubuntu Software needs update
Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:
When Ubuntu Software (package ubuntu-software) replaced Ubuntu
Software Center (package software-center) in 16.04, we made some
changes which focused on the new name.
However, there is a limitation with Ubuntu Software compared to its
predecessor: It shows and installs applications rather than packages,
and thus various help tools cannot be installed through Ubuntu
Software. A suitable GUI to browse and install packages is Synaptic
(separate page already exists).
An improved description of Ubuntu Software, including this limation,
would be desired.
