Add "uXX" numbering scheme to SailfishOS version in settings

People often refer to Sailfish updates as "u10" or "u11". Problem is, the mapping of this uXX mapping scheme to actual version numbers is not really available anywhere; no files in /etc mention those, the only way to know what update you're on is reading (and counting) release announcements or by talking to people who use this schema.

I've been told that Jolla also uses the uXX numbering schema internally, so I think it would be nice if it included both version types in settings, in "SailfishOS Updates" submenu. It could say "Version (u10)" for instance, instead of just "Version" and make it easier for everyone with little to no effort.

We're currently phasing out the uXX naming on top of the version numbers. To identify an upgrade, use the first 3 digits of the version number (the 4th one is the build count). As an example: could be the initial release of 1.1.2 (u11) could be a hotfix for 1.1.2

We'll also adjust some other terms, aligning a bit more with terminology used in Debian and other projects, starting with 1.1.2:

upgrade instead of update
update instead of hotfix
