Hello, I have gnome 3.12 on fedora 20 and gnome-software-3.12.2-3.fc20.x86_64. When I type sudo yum [or dnf] -qa I receive a list of all installed applications, however gnome-software indicates that I have NO installed applications. I wanted to create "app-folders" and I read that the only way to do that is to use "gnome-software", [also why is there no commandline way to do that? Example --> edit desktop files categories or using gsettings? But I digress, that is a secondary question]. How do I make "gnome-software" show that I have ANY applications installed on my system? I have dozens of applications installed, including full "Gnome Desktop" and full "Mate and XFCE Desktop" and many commonly used programs. Gnome-software also never shows a need for any updates, even though there are frequently many as indicated on the commandline. All org.gnome.settings-daemon.updates keys have been left at the gnome installed defaults - unchanged. ie. frequency-get-updates 86400. This computer runs 24/7 with reboots only for kernel updates, so 24hours=86400seconds have long, long passed. Thank you. Anton Schenker.

the problem is generate all metadata, you can't see all package because much developer doesn't want contribute, including a metadata to your source code...

Try: pkcon refresh and see if that gets gnome-software to list your packages.

Go to /etc/yum.repos.d/ Edit fedora.repo and fedora-updates.repo Remove the # from all lines that start with #baseurl Insert a # at the beginning of all lines that begin with metalink

Now edit the /etc/hosts file and add the following lines at the bottom

As superuser run the following command

pkcon refresh

Now restart the system
