Thanks for the reply. This sounds somewhat inconclusive, though it does
sound like things are not "badly" broken now.

I suggest we close this bug and then any additional issues found going
forward should get their own separate new bugs, by running:

  Gnome shell extensions are badly broken

Status in gnome-shell package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  After an upgrade this morning, the following things are not working:
  - Earlier the Application key brought up something called "Activities", which 
happens now via ApplicationA or SuperA, the microsoft key
  - I can not find and search for extensions in the "Software" application. 
There are just a few addons/extensions, gstreamer ones, fonts and some input
  - any attempt at removing an installed extension results in a "you have no 
permission" error, without asking for a password. Apparently gnome-shell is 
crashing in the background, i'll attach logs if the tool does not.
  - The Tweak app shows a warning triangle next to the "Dash to panel" 
extension, by clicking on it the "Extension" thing starts up which shows 
  - If I install the dash-to-panel extension from a package the top bar does 
not appears properly, the icons, workplace switcher etc all crumpled into the 
top left corne,r overlapping each other, thus being mostly unusable.

  I think that the extensions are not yet upgraded to gnome-shell 3.35,
  but I have no way to check it. I also have no trivial way to downgrade
  gnome shell to 3.34.

  Please advise.
