Description of problem:
Opening GNOME Software and trying to refresh updates gives this error.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open GNOME Software
2. Goto Updates tab
3. Click refresh button and wait

Actual results:
Error shows and nothing more happens

Expected results:
Information about pending updates or that system is up to date.

Additional info:
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 :)
