Bug Description

* Impact
The livepatch graphical interfaces are currently limited in bionic, there is no easy way to know the current status and the details of the changes applied. The new design improves the user experience and we want that to benefit the LTS users

* Test case
Boot a system which has livepatch fixes to be applied, once those are in place you get a notification, the notification should include a button to the settings

* Regression potential
The indicator is new code/a new UI so the regression potential is low.

Note that the changes include some new strings. Those are translated in disco and
Launchpad shares translations between series so we should get those translations included in the next bionic langpacks export.

I will accept this, but could you make sure that the documentation for bionic won't have to be modified anywhere? Can you send an e-mail to the ubuntu-doc team as a heads up? Thanks!
