On code inspection, I think the snap support in gnome-software 3.20 doesn't handle async operation failures correctly.

The install button showed the initialised progress state, but never updated. Dropping to the terminal I could see with snap changes that the task had errored (because of a 503 talking to the store). What should happen: The UI should provide some indication that the install was not successful.
