How do we go back to the OLD GUI ?

I just updated to calibre-2.80.0-x86_64 unsure what my older version was

but its GUI / Skin looked a lot better , the new one looks very cartoony and less professional in my opinion ...

You can turn the splash off in Look and Feel.

Don't know Launch Icons, I'm guessing they're equivalent of Windows desktop program shortcuts - can't you just change them in Ubuntu to <whatever.png>.

Huh? The icon has no white background. https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ko.../images/lt.png

And as for how to change icons in the Ubuntu dock, you will need to ask in a Ubuntu forum.
