Description of problem:
A copr repo can break gnome-software's look for software and make it display almost nothing without showing any error.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 25 (upgraded from Fedora 24)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a copr repo like this one : "duffert/qtox-latest"
2. Run gnome-software
3. See there is no software
4. run 'pkcon refresh force'
5. See the error message (Erreur fatale: Status code: 404 for https://copr-be.cloud.fedoraproject.org/results/duffert/qtox-latest/pubkey.gpg
) in french (= fatal error 404 in english)
6. Run 'dnf copr remove duffert/qtox-latest' (in this case)
7. Run 'pkcon refresh force' again
8. See no error
9. Run gnome-software
10. See software
There is no way for the user to guess why gnome-software doesnt find anything
At least throw an error message or skip the broken repo without breaking everything
It happened when upgrading from Fedora 24 to 25 beta
Thanks, should be fixed with https://github.com/rpm-software-management/libhif/pull/231
