GNOME Software is a utility for software installation and updates on computers running Linux.
It is the GNOME front-end to the PackageKit daemon, which itself is a front-end to several package management systems. These include systems based on both RPM and DEB. It is written in C, and was introduced in GNOME 3.10.
The program can be used to add and manage repositories as well as Ubuntu Personal Package Archives (PPA). Ubuntu replaced its previous Ubuntu Software Center program with GNOME Software starting with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, re-branded as "Ubuntu Software". It also supports fwupd for servicing of system firmware.
