[Solved] App Store app icon is duplicated in Lauchpad

BVP Asks: App Store app icon is duplicated in Lauchpad
Somehow, Apple’s App Store app icons are duplicated in the Lauchpad on my MacBook Pro running macOS 11.5 (Big Sur). Since this is a system-level application, I cannot delete one of these redundant icons. I tried the strategies that I found on the Internet, i.e.,

  1. Remove ~/Library/Application Support/Dock/*.db
  2. Run defaults write com.apple.dock ResetLaunchPad -bool true
  3. Run killall Dock
  4. Restart the system

But these duplicated icons are still in Lauchpad after reboot. I am wondering how to remove one of them. Thanks a lot for your help!
