maybe it's refreshing meta data in the background. Just let it sit for a little while and try again.

if it is still not working then, you can force the update of package information: pkcon refresh force.

have you tried to do dnf update and see if it works that way?

Dnf update has no effect on Gnome Software, at all.

You might be able to trigger the PackageKit backend to refresh by running pkcon refresh force --verbose. Or if it's throwing some sort of error, try pkcon repair.
