While that's not necessarily going to be done for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, I
believe you still need to update unity-control-center so that the VPN

Bug description:
  Debian has dropped libnm-glib support from most of its VPN plugins.

  We need to cherry-pick the gnome-shell 3.26.2-4 changes for gnome-
  shell to properly interact with VPNs.

  unity-control-center will need to be ported away from libnm-glib for
  it to display VPNs.

  The only other known affected desktop is Cinnamon which has fixes

  Here's the Debian transition bug:;tag=libnm

  At first look, KDE Plasma did not seem to be hurt by the libnm-glib
  support removal, but Kubuntu should probably check more closely.

  I am filing this bug to coordinate this transition and keep the VPN
  plugins in -proposed until we at least update gnome-shell.
