Well after waiting all day for gnome-software to load it's catalog, I tried installing some software. Well the first thing it does is nothing; it just ignores me. When it does decide to give an error message, it's always of the 'dep solve' variety. I guess in english this means to solve for dependencies. Ok, fair enough; however these have always been for some missing python dependency, such as bonobo. Am I missing something here, OBVIOUSLY PYTHON; but it does look as if someone forgot to include these or the dnf update script allowed itself to complete without getting these. Could it get any worse? NO!!!

Any suggestions for repairing this hot mess appreciated.

Also, when installing software or updating from the terminal, I've been getting a lot of curl and timeout errors. Could it also be that the update and repo servers are overloaded?

I don't fully understand your question.

  1. Does gnome-software load it's catalog before you try to install something? If you ahve solved your question from here [] will you post the solution for other readers?
  2. Can you post some of the error messages you have received?
