Description of problem:
Opening GNOME Software and trying to refresh updates gives this error.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open GNOME Software
2. Goto Updates tab
3. Click refresh button and wait
Error shows and nothing more happens
Information about pending updates or that system is up to date.
Fedora 25, 64 bit, updated today via cli with dnf, then reboot. Installed Firefox Developer flatpak from mojefedora.cz, pretty standard installation.
Weird, after reporting and checking again, I had some more updates - sudo dnf upgrade and reboot - done.
Opening Software again on Updates Tab showed two updates: Firefox Dev flatpak and some component. I clicked update all and they installed. Then two more components (i guess some flatpak stuff) showed and again I clicked update all.
After that there were no new updates visible, but manually refreshing, still gives this error.
Today I've got this: https://pasteboard.co/GD0ctit.png
Then Firefox Dev flatpack update showed up, and i updated it, with additional Localisation component, and after that I've got the same error as originally reported.
Hi, I just checked on F25, up to date (and after uninstalling Firefox Dev flatpack some time ago) - this bug still occurs for me when I try to refresh software updates via Gnome Software:
"Failed to get AppStream metadata: No such ref 'appsteam/x86_64' in remote bc"
Please take a look, thanks :)
