Description Martin Krajnak 2017-11-06 09:24:08 UTC
Description of problem:
Downloading flapak, opening in nautilus, clicking on install button, nothing happend.

08:37:43:0813 Gs  user/flatpak/*/runtime/org.gnome.Platform/3.24 runtime cannot have runtime!

I think there should be some feedback provided or alert, so user can take action e.g. install runtime

Furthermore, I've also tried to add flathub repo via:
sudo flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub

so the flathub apps can can be browsed, still cannot be installed:
09:03:16:0131 Gs  failed to call gs_plugin_app_install on flatpak: Remote "com.transmissionbt.Transmission-origin" not found
09:03:16:0131 Gs  not saving error for user/flatpak/com.transmissionbt.Transmission-origin/desktop/com.transmissionbt.Transmission.desktop/stable: Remote "com.transmissionbt.Transmission-origin" not found

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to flathub
2.Download flatpak/Choose open via application installer
3.Click Download

1.Go to flathub
2.Install flathub repo via cmd
3.Open Application Installer
4. Search flatpack and try to install

Actual results:
User can click the Install button many times, but there is no action and application itself provides no feedback.

Expected results:
User should be able to install those flatpaks or should at least be provided with some error/feedback that the flatpak won't install.

Additional info:
Failing flatpaks are instalable via command line tool without errors.

I played around a bit and adding the flathub repo is look like it is a workaround for installing flatpaks from web but gnome-software needs to be killed few times. Installing right from firefox or nautilus is not working anyway.

We need to backport a tiny non-invasive fix from upstream to get this working.

lmiksik, could you provide pm_ack+ and exception+, please?
