Geeky error message when trying to find applications online

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

1. Right click on an .avi file
2. "Open with another application..." > "Find applications online"
3. Wait
4. When you've got the list, just click on "Cancel"
5. An error message prompts : "Impossible to search applications online" followed by this geeky string : "GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.Packagekit.Modify.Cancelled:"

I am pretty sure that we can avoid this for the next LTS.
