gnome software does not warn on removing packages during install

Bug Description

I accidentally installed a 32bit .deb of the "google music desktop player", this seemed to remove libappindicator and fuck a few things up (my indicators vanished, google chrome wouldn't load etc).

This software installer is dangerous, it doesn't warn people on dependencies other apps need being removed or replaced.
