    Ubuntu Software Store Missing Apps?

    So this is how the store looks:

    Which is fine, but when I click a category, this is all the apps that show up: (this is editors pick, happens to all)

    There's supposed to be more, I've tried reinstalling gnome software and that doesn't work
    I'm using Ubuntu 20.04 (external live persistence hard drive, "Try Ubuntu" selected)


    Also problems with chrome remote desktop:

    Install the Synaptic Package manager and use it to install software. IMHO a better choice.

    If you run:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    Does it work OK?

    Yes. Also I had to reinstall all of Linux cause it out me in an infinite log in loop. Now "editors pick" is the only thing showing up. (I did minimal install)

    Edit, I only see a square with 3 dots in it under categories, installed tab also shows nothing

    If the icon for the application is named "Ubuntu Software" it's a snap package. You might have better luck with the Ubuntu repository package instead (named "Software").

    First, remove "Ubuntu Software" using your terminal:
    Code:
    snap remove snap-store
    Then install "Software" from the Ubuntu repository using your terminal:
    Code:
    sudo apt install gnome-software
    The icon is labeled "Software".

    What's the point of a snap package


    Also everything works now. But I still need help with chrome remote desktop. Now it doesn't even give the option to turn it on. And chrome keeps asking for a default keyring. Idk what that is

    snap is supposed to provide up to date software while the repo version (from synaptic) may get old after a while. Personally I prefer to use ppa or compile from source to keep up to date. The snap store also provides some proprietary software not available in the normal repo.
