This bug was fixed in the package gnome-shell - 3.28.0-0ubuntu4

gnome-shell (3.28.0-0ubuntu4) bionic; urgency=medium

  * debian/rules:
    - Drop javascript comments in gnome-shell.pot so the currently used
      version of gettext in LP gets more permissive wrt cases where
      the number of %d modifiers in a translation differs from what's
      in msgid (LP: #1756547).

Bug description:
  Some strings of GNOME Shell are untranslated in the Czech translation
  on Ubuntu 18.04 although they are translated upstream and when I try
  to manually translate them on launchpad, I get this error: "number of
  format specifications in 'msgid_plural' and 'msgstr[0]' does not

  The bad strings are:
  %d minute ago
  %d minutes ago

  %d hour ago
  %d hours ago

  %d week ago
  %d weeks ago

  %d month ago
  %d months ago

  %d year ago
  %d years ago

  They seem to be correct, but they are not accepted for some reason.
