Gday @Jonte ,
This maybe caused by a connection issue.
Please refresh your computer modem & router ,
Hope this may help.

Also make sure your source for updates is set to 'Main Server', not your country's locale server.

Start Software Updater, then cancel/stop it. Click on Settings then go to first Tab and make sure your Software Sources are pointing to 'Main Server'.

Use Software Updater, rather than Gnome Software channel.

I got fed up with so many errors that I stopped using Gnome Software Store. :melting_face:

For experience, the most common way to fix issues with this “good store” :unamused: is terminating or killing it. But personally (and probably even anyone else that passed some minutes or hours using it) I'd like 1 more option to destroy it though :smiling_imp:. Do you know how to terminate or kill it?

Right-click the taskbar > System Monitor > Processes > right-click gnome-software > Terminate > open GNOME Software again and try what you wanted to install. Use Kill if Terminate doesn't fix.
