Bug Description

It lives it's own life. VERY confising for a newcomer - especially for mac/windows user. This is unacceptable. This is the first and main app that newcomers deal with. For example I have recently installed VLC player via Ubuntu Software. Than I closed Ubuntu Software. I was using VLC for whole day, but when I open Ubuntu Software, it still suggests me to Install it. And this problem is not just in 16.04. I have tried Ubuntu few years ago and this problem pissed me off.

Install something. Ubuntu Software shows remove/launch buttons, but only for a second! And than it hides remove/launch and shows Install again. And only after reboot it understands finally that application is already installed.

Sometimes when I open Updates tab I see many available updates, than Ubuntu Software starts convulsing like epileptic. It shows empty updates list, than many updates again, than no updates - no comments. This is SHAME.

affects: software-center (Ubuntu) → gnome-software (Ubuntu)

Thanks for the bug report.

Thank you for useful hot key (Alt + F2) I was looking for it, but it is not visible in system settings or in [hold super]. Situation with hot keys is very complicated too. I'm starting to think that Unity desktop is not the best choice.
