Update Note: This question is different than Has 'Ubuntu Software' been renamed to 'Snap Store'? because as I learned it seems that the Snap-Store has been renamed to Ubuntu Software -- the opposite of the other question.

I upgraded to Ubuntu 20.04 about 2 weeks ago (from 18.04). I had the Snap Store in my installation and had ran it. Today I went to run it and couldn't find it. Then learned there is Ubuntu Software app which shows my Snaps in it.

Also, I notice that SnapCraft is installed but when I attempt to search for it, it doesn't show up. Do you know why that might be?
Was there some update that inadvertently removed the Snap Store?

Check this out. When you run the command:
You may also see a toast / pop-up that looks like the following:
Even though you started up snap-store it says that "Ubuntu Software is ready".
