Bug Description

Bug #1520154 introduced UBUNTU_CODENAME, but the final name that landed in the os-release specification is VERSION_CODENAME. Ubuntu specifies VERSION_CODENAME since Ubuntu 16.04 "xenial" (see bug #1598212).

So let's finally drop UBUNTU_CODENAME from os-release starting with Ubuntu 24.10 "oracular".

Marking snapd as affected since it uses UBUNTU_CODENAME in some files in tests/.
