Bug Description

ubuntu-web-launchers only contains the amazon launcher and should be removed from 18.04.4 like focal.

[Test Case]
1. On a freshly installed system, uninstall ubuntu-web-launchers, logout/login.
2. Boot an ISO without ubuntu-web-launchers being seeded to the live session
3. Do a default installation from an ISO without ubuntu-web-launchers being seeded
4. Customise your launcher by adding or removing some icons. Remove ubuntu-web-launchers and make sure that your custom icons are all there
5. *With the default set of launcher favourites*, update to ubuntu-settings 18.04.7

For all cases, verify that the Amazon launcher is not in the dock

[Impact]
None

[Risk of regression]

If the shell handles this removal badly on existing systems then maybe favourites wouldn't be displayed or you'd see a weird icon not found icon (test cases #4).

  * Make ubuntu-web-launchers an empty package and drop amazon launcher from
    favourites. For the bionic SRU, it is safest to leave this as an empty
    package. Users can remove it if they want to. (LP: #1860565)
