For some time GNOME Software is completely empty for me – there aren’t any apps in any category. The logs mentions a failure to create a lockfile; I tried to report that upstream, but was told that it’s just a system error, some kind of corruption or something.
I tried cleaning up/refreshing the rpmdb, no luck. This is the full log:

Any idea what might be wrong?
