Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:
1. Launch Software Boutique from Ubuntu Mate 18.04 (you can use the live session)
2. Click "Retrieve the latest software listings"
3. Go to the "Bulk Queue" and apply the changes
4. Check if any apps are available to install

Expected result:
Apps are listed and available to install.

Actual result:
There are no apps in the Software Boutique. What is more, apt/apt-get is broken after doing these steps ("the repository ' bionic Release' does not have a Release file").

Ubuntu Mate version: 20180103
ubuntu-mate-welcome version: 17.10.15

AIUI this is to be expected for now, because the developers are working on the new version.

@Mantas I just checked that and luckily, this problem does not exist in Ubuntu Mate 18.04.1, so I'm marking this bug as "Fix Released".
