[Bug 2036981] Re: UIFe: update for the new snap store naming and icon


The ubuntu-docs update fixes the source strings, but the translations
are all invalidated by this despite the fact that many of them leave the
string <app>Ubuntu Software</app> untranslated.

I want us to automate search/replace on <app>Ubuntu Software</app> to
<app>App Center</app> so that we don't invalidate all of the existing
translations for ubuntu-docs, this close to release.  (Same concern that
I expressed for gnome-initial-setup itself.)  This is a little trickier
because of the various multiline msgstrs in the .po files.  I'll see if
we can get this going today/tomorrow.

  UIFe: update for the new snap store naming and icon

Status in gnome-initial-setup package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  The mantic Desktop image transitioned from the old snap-store to the
  new app-center (https://github.com/ubuntu/app-center)

  The gnome initial setup now incorrectly references 'ubuntu software'
  when it should refer to the 'App Center', the update is changing the
  name and also removing the quoting around the name which was flagged
  as something we don't want during UI review

  We also want to replace the snapcrafter icon with the icon of the App

  It's going to require revalidating the translations but it should be a
  trivial change for translators since only the appname is changing, we
  believe there is still time for that work before release and that
  doing this cycle will increase the coverage for the LTS
