[Impact]
Some distributions ship software-properties-gtk but not gnome-control-center. Considering that Livepatch strictly depends on the online account panel in gnome-control-center we should not show the option to enable Livepatch if those distributions, otherwise enabling Livepatch will fail and it will seem buggy.

[Test Case]
1. Start xubuntu (Bionic)
2. Open software-properties-gtk
3. Go to "Updates" tab
4. Make sure no Livepatch UI is displayed

[Regression Potential] 
Please make sure the Livepatch UI is correctly displayed in vanilla Bionic.

[Original Bug Report]

Unfortunately Livepatch strictly depends on the online account panel in
gnome-control-center. We should hide the checkbutton in flavors (e.g.
Xubuntu) that do not ship gnome-control-center and/or the online account
panel.
