I can ping all of these domains without issues. I'm the one who manages the network and internet connection in the house so there shouldn't be any firewall blocking these addresses.
Apt is fully functional and doesn't report errors. Flatpak is fully functional and doesn't report errors. It's only an issue with Gnome Software, and it seems like these are false error messages because I can close these messages and Gnome Software is fully functional.
I posted about this on linuxquestions.org a few weeks ago and didn't really get much helpful info. A couple people had me try pinging these domains, and another person told me that it's because the network device gets shut off during suspend(obviously) and that I should set my laptop to not suspend when the lid closes(not a good solution).
I'm using Debian 10 Buster with the flatpak plugin for Gnome Software installed. This issue has been happening for the past few months as far as I can remember. All I want is for these messages to disappear, whether by hiding them or treating the root cause. It's really annoying having to keep closing them.
