I recently installed Elementary OS 0.4, after doing some regular installations and updates, the App Center (0.1.3) icons are missing, they have a gray gear instead. How can I fix this?

This is how it looks

I don't think this is a problem on your end. I have the same issue and i am sure they are working on this and hopefully an update will hit soon to fix. Apps should still download and install with no problem. You may want to read the description carefully as there are no icons to know exactly what you are downloading. Hope this helps.

  • Quite weird, because the only thing that I remember that I did, was updating the system, a regular apt-get update. I was able to see that it downloaded some kind of icons. Commented Feb 8, 2017 at 22:10
