    Question Ubuntu Software won't show installed programs/extensions after upgrade to 20.04

    Hi Folks,

    I just upgraded from 18.04.5 to 20.04.2 - the upgrade went smoothly for the most part.

    However, when I open Ubuntu Software, it no longers shows what I have installed. Everything else seems to work, but when I click on the tab to show my installed programs, nothing happens. (see screenshot). Any ideas how to fix this?

    Thanks in advance!

    I can confirm this problem. I do not open Software app very often. But I just now tested the app on my install of 20.04 and it has the same problem as the one you have found. I do not have the answer.

    Ubuntu Software is OK on my system with respect to installed applications. But gnome-shell extensions are not shown in Ubuntu Software - instead, they are in the separate Extensions app.
    Extensions also handles updates. See screenshot 2.

    Just curious, what extensions app is that?

    I can't get mine to show either - apps or extensions.

    Me too. I don't use Software that much either, but I wanted to check it out after a fresh upgrade, just to see if anything interesting had changed. It works fine for browsing apps to install, but it won't show your installed apps or extensions.

    It's gnome-shell-extensions. It's in the Ubuntu repository.

    Code:
    dmn@Sydney-vm:~$ apt show gnome-shell-extensions
    Package: gnome-shell-extensions
    Version: 3.36.1-1
    Priority: optional
    Section: universe/gnome
    Origin: Ubuntu

    This issue might get fixed with an update/upgrade. I think my system was updated yesterday after my post. And Software is now showing icons for installed applications.

    I can confirm this. I just checked again and now my installed apps are showing. Must have been fixed by the latest update.

    I'm trying to find the button to mark this thread as "solved", but I don't see it now.
