Bug Description

[ Description ]

GNOME upstream have released a new stable version of gnome-software.

[ QA ]

GNOME has a micro release exception that covers this package.


So we don't need to verify the fixes explicitly.

[ Regression Potential ]

Changes could cause issues in GNOME Software, which might make it hard to install or remove software. Default store in Ubuntu is snap-store, so this doesn't affect the majority of users.

I don't see gnome-software version 3.36.1 in Groovy yet...

Hello AsciiWolf, or anyone else affected,

Accepted gnome-software into focal-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-software/3.36.1-0ubuntu0.20.04.0 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, what testing has been performed on the package and change the tag from verification-needed-focal to verification-done-focal. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-focal. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance for helping!

N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s) fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in -proposed for a minimum of 7 days.

After enabling -proposed I updated gnome-software to version 3.36.1-0ubuntu0.20.04.0.

After checking that each category was fully populated with icons that represented software applications I successfully installed and removed two applications from the Ubuntu repositories (.deb) and a snap application.

I also checked that the options on the 'hamburger' menu were functioning correctly and that it wasn't possible for gnome-software to remove itself.
