When I try to update my Fedora 21 Workstation with the Gnome Software it reboots but it stops during the update process and says it couldn't find a package.

When I use yum update in the terminal it works.

When new updates were available I tried it again and it still didn't work with Gnome Software, only with yum.

The new tool, named gnome-software, is designed from the beginning for installing applications. It will present applications with information that is relevant to users (icons, screenshots, reviews, descriptions, ratings,...) instead of information that is relevant for packagers (dependencies, package size, file lists,...).

Hi deusdara, I don't get it. You mean gnome-software is not meant to be an update tool, just an installer? That's funny! Why does gnome-software always want to reboot for software updates? That's sooo MS.
