  Installed application from .deb does not appear unless Ubuntu is

Bug description:
  I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 x64 and the installed version of gnome-software
  is 3.20.1

    * I install a desktop application from a .deb package. I tried several 
methods (apt install, dpkg -i, xdg-open then click on install button).
    * After the installation, I control that the application is visible from 
the system:
      * The application appears correctly in the application list in Unity Dash
      * The application appears in the "Open With" menu list in Nautilus 
(because of registered mime types)
      * The package name of the application can be used as an argument of apt 
commands (apt show, apt remove...) and dpkg (dpkg -l, dpkg -L...)
    * I start gnome-software.
    * I click on the "installed" tab to get the list of installed applications.

  expected result: the freshly installed application is in the list
  actual result: the freshly installed application is not in the list.

  If I reboot my computer and start gnome-software, the installed
  application appears in the list.

  It looks like there is some kind of cache that is not refreshed at the
  right moment.
