Bug Description

This happens on latest Ubuntu Focal (without deb gnome-software/ubuntu-software packages installed, only Snap Store snap). When clicking the "Open in Software" button on Applications tab of GNOME Settings, nothing happens.

Not sure if this issue should be fixed in a Snap Store or GNOME Settings, adding gnome-control-center.

It's an issue on the snap side afaik, it's just that since it's isolated from the system it can't call a command from outside the snap...
