Description Petr Schindler 2015-04-30 11:18:24 UTC
I tried to remove an application. I went to list of installed apps and there I clicked on 'remove' button. I confirmed that I want to delete it. At that moment the application is removed from list. But then I didn't provide password to sudo prompt (I clicked cancel). Now the application isn't in the list of installed applications and it isn't removed.

When I search for that application in 'all' tab it is still marked as installed and I can remove it. But you have to restart gnome-software (kill it and run again) to make that application appear in installed list.
