I am running Fedora Silverblue 33. For some time now Gnome Software doesn’t start if the laptop has been running for a while, as a quick fix I can reboot the laptop after which Gnome Software works again.
The behaviour sounds similar to Gnome Software does not launch but I don’t have pcsc-tools installed and /etc/fwupd/daemon.conf is already at EnumerateAllDevices=false.
journalctl -f doesn’t show any logs in between an attempted start of Gnome Software and the message Timeout was reached.
Unfortunately I don’t know where or how to debug this issue further and would welcome some help.
I can’t really say that I have - but the issue is solved for me.
What has changed? Nearly everything:
I reinstalled Silverblue (as Rawhide) from scratch in order to change from an cryptsetup + lvm + ext4 setup to cryptsetup + btrfs
I lost most of my home directory due to me being stupid and not having cloud sync at the moment.
I learned how to use rpm-ostree reset and rpm-ostree and rebased from rawhide to Fedora 32 and again to Fedora 33 until gTile is available on Fedora 34.
Judging from that I would try wiping ~/.local and/or ~/.cache? In case you made important customizations I would back the folders up.
I would welcome the feedback if you stumple uppon a solution that goes into the right direction. In case switching to a fresh ~/.local and/or ~/.cache worked I would be interested in a more thorough investigation.
Thanks for the reply. I noticed that if I kill the gnome-software process, it will show correctly the next time I open it. I also had a lot of flatpak updates due to new nvidia drivers being released. I have the feeling it was somehow related…
