I’ve been able to use GNOME Software perfectly fine in the past, back when I was on Fedora Silverblue 31. Since updating to 32, I’ve noticed issues with GNOME Software on every single boot.
Basically, I no longer get notifications about new updates anymore, and if I try to open GNOME Software to search for something, the GUI won’t open. If I open System Monitor, I can see that the process is running in the background. After I kill it through System Monitor, I try to open GNOME Software again, and it opens another background process. I then try yet again to open GNOME Software, and at that point the GUI finally opens and I get update notifications.
So on every single boot, I now go through the following:
- Try to open GNOME Software. No GUI appears.
- Open System Monitor.
- Kill the GNOME Software process.
- Open GNOME Software. It opens as a background process.
- Open GNOME Software again. The GUI finally appears.
Does anybody know why this is happening and how I can resolve it?
