I've tried the following:
- sudo apt install --reinstall ubuntu-software
- sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
Running on Ubuntu 19.04 and tried with Pi-hole disabled.

As my snap store app was apparently hanging and the search function was not working properly, I decided to install gnome-store in my ubuntu 20.04 and removed the snap store. However, I later changed my mind and decided to re-install the snap store. But to my surprise, it was showing a snap store, not ubuntu software. The steps I followed to reclaim the old ubuntu software (snap store) are:
Completely removed and purged gnome-software using
sudo apt purge gnome-software
Then removed the snap-store using
snap remove snap-store
Then re-installed snap store using
snap install snap-store
To regain the standard ubuntu icon, use the following command:-
snap refresh snap-store --channel=stable/ubuntu-20.04
This fixes the issue !!
