Gnome software update says "Software is up to date" when dnf shows 395 updates

Screenshot showing Gnome software on right, dnf update output on left
Description of problem:
Gnome software update says "Software is up to date" no matter how often I hit refresh, but 'dnf update' shows 395 updates to install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 23 beta release, fresh install
Always on this install, at least until I manually update via dnf.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 23 beta
2. Open Gnome software center, pick 'Upload' tab, and hit the refresh button
3. Wait for hours until flaky wifi times out, halting one of Software's package downloads
4. Reboot with proprietary wifi drivers that are more reliable and try again
Gnome software center update tab keeps saying 'Software is up to date', 'Last checked 10:10'
Gnome software center should install some of those 395 updates dnf keeps telling me about.
Can you get me the log of:
Please wait for the app to start, switch to the updates panel, click refresh and then attach the entire log to this bug. Thanks.
Unfortunately this installation has since been updated manually... I'm trying to replicate the conditions in a VM but haven't been able to yet. Will retest on a physical machine with the flaky wifi adapter I was using before later this weekend...
I'm having that problem too.
I'll upload the log for the next updates.
Here is the log you asked for.
I'm also attaching dnf output.

Is there any update here, given that the requested log has been attached?

Move this to rawhide as there are many duplicate bugs across F22, F23, F24, rawhide.
I get the same issue. Updates don't show up in Gnome Software until I click the refresh button 1-2 days later. To get around this, I have to do a "pkcon refresh force" and then click the refresh button in Gnome Software **twice** before updates appear. Cache time issue?
Also sidenote, I have a machine I've left running for a while now and Gnome Software said it last checked for updates a week ago and shows no updates. What is the update interval on Gnome Software?
This problem is still appearing today.
Do you need additional logs ?
Were there any progress ?
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 25 development cycle.
Changing version to '25'.
Is there any update on this? Shouldn't these update methods use the same package database? Or at least keep in sync so that when one refreshes, the other will also.
