Where are the GNOME Software update logs?

I would like to find out, which updates GNOME Software recently performed (for some debugging). Thus, I would like to view to the logs, which are (hopefully) generated and saved somewhere by the tool. Dnf does it too (but not if GNOME software is used for installing software, of course) and it is quite essential to debug potential problems arising from software/package updates.

As I could not find these logs anywhere, thus my question: Where are those logs? Where can I see recent actions performed by GNOME software?

GNOME Software uses PackageKit which is a front-end for DNF. Meaning everything should be logged as regular package transactions. DNF stores its logs in a text file, and PackageKit stores its logs in the systemd journal.

journalctl -t PackageKit
cat /var/log/dnf.log
