How fix this error [updater]?

When I go to update (via the software manager), this is what I see.

error_update

What does this mean and how do I fix it?

This is usually caused by the Snap and Flatpak plugins for the gnome-software Software Store.
You can try correcting the issue with

killall gnome-software

rm -rf ~/.cache/gnome-software

sudo apt install --reinstall gnome-software

Then launch Software and test.
But...
If you are not using any Snap or Flatpak packages, you also could just remove snapd and flatpak and see if that permanently resolves the issue.
