Gnome-Software Empty [SOLVED]

Postby mooreted » 2018-02-17 06:19

On Debian Stretch I thought I would try out the Gnome Software Center just for the heck of it. Problem is, it's empty. Under the 'All' category there is nothing listed. Is there a way to make this work?

Have you tried
Code: Select all
# apt update

Which desktop environment (if any) are you using?

I am running Gnome 3.22. apt update && apt upgrade does not help.

No, it came with Gnome when I installed it. I started out with Cinnamon then decided to install Gnome.

Care to expand on this?

I would use
Code: Select all
# apt install task-gnome-desktop

for the full-fat experience or
Code: Select all
# apt install gnome-core

for a more streamlined box :)

Other options are available...

I uninstalled gnome-software and reinstalled it. It's working now.

apt autoremove gnome-software
apt install gnome-software
