Title:
  No error id for username/password error returned from snapd

Status in Snappy:
  Fix Released
Status in gnome-software package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  If you fail to authentication with snapd the response is:

  {"type":"error","status-
  code":401,"status":"Unauthorized","result":{"message":"cannot get
  discharge macaroon from store: Provided email/password is not
  correct."}}

  In comparison, if you provide valid credentials but need two factor
  you get the response:

  {"type":"error","status-
  code":401,"status":"Unauthorized","result":{"message":"two factor
  authentication required","kind":"two-factor-required"}}

  The latter response has a 'kind' field which a client can use to
  provide appropriate text / imagery to inform the user. The former
  response does not, and the message is inappropriately technical to
  show to a user.
