Why would deb2snap transition ever exist for stable/ubuntu-20.10 or
later? Given that it should be just a snap in 20.10 and that's it. And
in 20.10 and later, installing 20.10 should not follow the
ubuntu-xx.yy branch either.

For example, when people select to install snaps in subiquity
snapstore screen, we don't follow ubuntu-xx.yy branches either.

Upgrades from focal should be dropping /ubuntu-xx.yy branch tracking
too. Cause maas is not a seeded snap installed by default.

juju doesn't have latest/stable/ubuntu-20.04 branch either, why should
maas have it?

(lxd & desktop snaps are different because they are seeded, maas is
closer to juju => unseeded servery/devopsy software).
