Bug Description

Ubuntu 16.04 is running a version of gnome-software based on 3.20.1 which is an older stable release (latest stable release is 3.20.5). The Ubuntu changes were managed in a git branch that is difficult to manage. We have not been able to bring in all the stable changes to this branch and it is difficult to modify. We have rebased our changes on 3.20.5 [1] and propose these as a Stable Release Update.

[1] https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-desktop/2017-June/005011.html

[Test Case]
1. Run GNOME Software
2. Execute the test plan https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Process/Merges/TestPlans/gnome-software

Expected result:
Running latest stable release, no regressions from 3.20.1

Observed result:
Running older release.

[Regression Potential]
Due to the number of changes there is a risk of regression. These changes are all on a stable branch, so upstream considers them to be safe. We ran this version from a PPA to check for issues, and there don't seem to be any problems.
