Public bug reported:

The pages in the Welcome to Ubuntu wizard don't seem to apply very well
if the user isn't an admin user.

GNOME Initial Setup's design is that it runs at first login for every

1. Welcome (no problem)
2. Livepatch (requires admin)
3. Help improve Ubuntu (maybe it doesn't require admin? But is this setting per 
system or per user? If it's per system, then maybe it shouldn't be shown to 
non-admins any way.)
4. Get more apps (requires admin to install additional apps)
5. Ready to Go (no problem)
6. Launches Help to GNOME Getting Started (no problem)

AccountsService has a D-Bus property AccountType that is set to 1 if the user 
is an admin.

1. GNOME's Initial Setup works for non-admin users because it has
several features that are relevant to non-admins. We could at least
include their Online Accounts page (LP: #1762192)

2. Skip Livepatch and "Help improve Ubuntu" if user isn't admin. The
apps page does show installed snaps so maybe it's useful to non-admins.
It's not like we hide the Software app from non-admins.

If we incorporate both those suggestions, the pages for non-admins are
1. Welcome
2. Online Accounts
3. Get more apps
4. Ready to Go
5. Launches Help to GNOME Getting Started

  Welcome to Ubuntu doesn't make as much sense if user isn't admin
