gnome-software (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

If I download .deb file e.g. chrome or skype, it will open in gnome-software, but pressing the install button does nothing.

This is on ubuntu 16.04 (installed today from a 16.04.2 image, and fully updated).

This is maybe a re-occurrence of Bug #1672424 or Bug #1573408

Thanks for your report. I tried with gnome-software 3.20.5-0ubuntu0.16.04.8 and it works fine (I used the deb of itch for the test)
Is it still an issue for you with latest version of gnome-software?

I don't have a 16.04 install around currently. But it seems to be fixed in 3.26.3-2ubuntu1
