The examples test output is not good

Bug Description

The results of successful and failed examples tests is not good. It's hard to parse, and doesn't provide all the information needed to understand the steps that lead to an error.

Some things we can do to improve it:

Print the commands executed and their output as they are run.
Print a summary at the end of the execution.
Replace the \n and \t in the output detail with proper white spaces.


 * For users, None.

 * This change will make it easier to understand the errors introduced by branches in progress.

[Test Case]

 * Open the results in the jenkins job and check the output and reports.

[Regression Potential]

 * autopkgtests could start failing. This will block the PR from merging into master, so we are covered.

There is nothing to verify in xenial-updates. I'm marking this as done.

The verification of the Stable Release Update for snapcraft has completed successfully and the package has now been released to -updates. Subsequently, the Ubuntu Stable Release Updates Team is being unsubscribed and will not receive messages about this bug report. In the event that you encounter a regression using the package from -updates please report a new bug using ubuntu-bug and tag the bug report regression-update so we can easily find any regressions.
