[UIFe] Change default theme to Yaru Ambience variant

Bug Description

We've made a decision to ship the new Yaru themes light and dark as options in EE, not as the default.

The default will actually be "Yaru Ambience" which is a very similar visual style to the traditional dark window header bars as in Disco. This will preserve the traditional look of the Ubuntu desktop for 19.10.

There is a minor bug in Yaru Ambience which is being worked on right now (limited to GNOME Boxes and Videos) but I am filing this bug now in order to try and land the new changes as soon as that bug is fixed.

The upshot of this change is that screenshots made since UI freeze could now look wrong when using the default theme. However, screenshots from previous Ubuntu releases will look more similar to 19.10.

N.p. from a desktop docs POV. The reason in the linked message applies.
