Bug Description

Impact
gnome-software just landed in Ubuntu this cycle and still has some reliability issues

Test case

deb backend
In addition of testing specific fixes listed in the changelog also make sure there is no functional regressions.

snap backend
the new backend is going to be enable starting with that version, searching for a snap (e.g "hello-world") should work, installing it should prompt for u1 credentials and successfully install

Regression impact
the snap backend was not enabled before so that shouldn't create new issues, the deb changes are mostly covered by specific bug reports and the other small tweaks shouldn't create issues

-----

The first gnome-software SRU is going to include some fixes and code improvements not matching referenced bugs, we also wants to enable the snaps backend since it's working well enough for that now

I just updated gnome-software (and related packages) to version 3.20.1+git20160426.1.a976144-ubuntu-xenial-0ubuntu1.

I can now find some snaps in gnome-software and install and remove them.
I can also see installed snaps in the "Installed" tab.

No admin authentication is requested (I am in "sudo" group, didn't try with non-sudo user), but "snap install" in the terminal requires sudo.

Ubuntu One account login is requested, but why is this needed? No login is required when installing snaps from the terminal.

A filter to display only snap would be very useful.

By the way, not all snaps are shown in gnome-software. "links" for example is not shown, but "nmap" is.
Are only snaps with icons being displayed?
