The pycharm-community snap package can be installed from the terminal in all currently supported versions of Ubuntu with the following command:

sudo snap install pycharm-community --classic 

Note that a snap in classic confinement behaves as a traditionally packaged application with full access to the system, and PyCharm plugins are installed into the user's home directory.

I tested the pycharm-community snap package, and the Snap Store is working. There may be a problem with Ubuntu Software not being up to date. I have experienced problems installing snap packages from Ubuntu Software that were immediately solved by installing that snap package from the terminal. I prefer to install snap packages from the terminal, because I like to run a command like snap info pycharm-community to get information about a snap package before I install it. For example pycharm-community has 3 stable installation channels, as well as 3 candidate, beta and edge channels, for a total of 12 channels.
