Unable to install updates org.gnome.Platform/x86_64/41 not installed

I get this message when trying to update


files.

Unable to install updates org.gnome.Platform/x86_64/41 not installed

Those are for Flatpak Packages. If you are not using any flatpaks, you can safely ignore that.
If you just want it gone; you have two options:

  1. ) Keeping Flatpak in case you use it

flatpak update

killall gnome-software

rm -rf ~/.cache/gnome-software

Launch Software Store and test...
2. ) Removing Flatpak entirely:

sudo apt remove --purge flatpak

Thank you. Took the remove option and it is now done.
