Snap Store only shows "Editor Picks" in "Explore" mode.

Asked by greg on 2020-10-18

I updated recently from 18.04(?) to 20.04.1 LTS
When I pull up the Snap Store in Ubuntu 20.04 all I see is the editor picks when I look at the downloadable software under "Explore".
When I select "Updates" it says my software is up to date. However when I select refresh in the upper left corner it says:
----------------------------------------------
Unable to get list of updates:
remote lvfs has no cache signature.
------------------------------------------------------

How can I get this function back?

I can browse in Firefox so my computer is connecting to the internet.

This should explain what is going on: GNOME Software - https://fwupd.org/lvfs/docs/users

This should offer a solution: Answer 1 - Terminal input: snap remove fwupd

If it did not fix the problem file a bug report. Bug 1899860 is very similar to what you are experiencing.

Bernard,
I put in
"snap remove fwupd"
I received a message that fwupd is not installed.
I still have the problem.
Do I need to install fwupd?

No you do not need to reinstall it. File a bug report

Can you help with this problem?
