GNOME Software - Unable to get list of updates

rpm-ostree update works but when I try to look for updates from GNOME Software I keep getting this error. Rebooting doesn’t help.
Unable%20to%20get%20list%20of%20updates

Same problem here, on Silverblue 30. Any idea?

I don’t know, what the issue is, but I would suggest not to use gnome-software for now and just use CLI. It’s not optimal but I think gnome-software is currently in a state of adapting both rpm-ostree and flatpak. We’ll see in the next major update.

I found this issue on the gnome-software upstream repo - Unable to get list of updates: Failed to obtain lock 'metadata' (#710) · Issues · GNOME / gnome-software · GitLab

My advice is to follow along with that issue and try to provide additional info there.
