I've installed lok 0.4 today and the app center is empty except for installed applications. This is a known bug:


However, the suggested workaround in the link (i.e. "if you restart (or otherwise kill appcenter) the issue will correct itself") does not work. Still empty.

Any ideas for another workaround?

  • It looks like the issue now has corrected itself. It apparently took a couple of restarts though

Open a terminal and type:

sudo apt update (and put in your password when asked)

This updates the software repositories of elementary OS. Then reboot.

AppCenter will now have all the software available to Loki.
