I have what appears to "Gnome Software" on my test 16.04 Laptop computer.
At least it looks very much like the screenshots in your second link.

I found it by typing "software" into the box from that top left icon "search you computer" thingy.
I didn't find any USC.

Disclaimer: I am a server person, and do not know the desktop stuff well.

So, I am suggesting that the re-write should be able to proceed.
