Bug Description

In bug #1717951 Imagemagick was already removed from being displayed in GNOME-Shell.

It is still listed in GNOME-Software which causes some (potential) usability issues:

Users can still test the "imagemagick" app from within Ubuntu Software and decide to remove it from there. Because that app looks dated, ugly and out of place in a modern desktop environment. Removing Imagemagick has the bad side-effect of removing printing support while user won't even realize that Imagemagick was printing related at all.

Thus I propose to remove the app from being listed as installed in Ubuntu Software at all. Or to be moved to the "System Apps" section to prevent users from removing it manually (and unvoluntarily CUPS with it).
