Bug Description

Ubuntu Studio Xenial 16.04.2 ISO running a live session on a laptop without battery.

1. Select software from the menu
2. No apps shown in "All".
3. Click on "Installed". No apps shown, but "Waiting" circular wheel is spinning.
4. Go to terminal and "apt-get update".
4. Give up waiting for installed apps to show up in Gnome Software.
5. Select "Quit" from the Gnome software menu > Software freezes (wheel icon stops spinning) and remains open.

The application window should close when you select "Quit", but it doesn't. Instead the application appears to freeze.
