What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
ls -al ~/.local/share/app-info/xmls
and how did you install steam ?

I do not use symlinks in Peppermint,  it is my base for installing all Steam Games - I symlink back to Peppermint if I am in another Distro

I installed steam like I always do by dl the .deb file from the steam website

See here:
https://forum.manjaro.org/t/gnome-software-center-unable-to-get-list-of-updates-failed-to-write-file-error-opening-file-home-kevin-local-share-app-info-xmls-steam-xml-gz-no-such-file-or-directory/45137/3

it seems that if you install steam via gnome-software that file gets created.

You have the option to reinstall steam via gnome-software .. that might fix the error, but don't blame me if it breaks steam.

If Gnome are making gnome-software dependent on apps being installed through it, well that seems INSANE too me .. yet another reason I'd be more than happy to get rid of the piece of crap entirely.

[EDIT]

I'm seriously beginning to think adding gnome-software (for snap support) was a mistake.

OK so how do I go about uninstalling gnome-software without borking my system.

I can leave as is as I do not need to install anything else - and if I did it would be via terminal anyway
