There is not any appdata.xml/metainfo.xml file available in the Wireshark package. Because of this, Wireshark cannot be found and/or installed using the GNOME Software application or another package manager UI based on AppStream.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open GNOME Software.
2. Type "wireshark".

Changing version to '27'.
This issue has been fixed in Fedora 27.
