Title:
  GNOME Software 3.20.5 doesn't install 3rd party deb's, doesn't prompt
  for authentication

Status in gnome-software package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in gnome-software source package in Xenial:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  Ubuntu GNOME 16.04.3
  gnome-software 3.20.5-0ubuntu0.16.04.5

  Impact
  ------

  Test Case
  ---------
  Visit https://www.google.com/chrome/ in Firefox and download Chrome.
  Open with "Software Install"
  The Ubuntu/GNOME Software app should start and show you a basic page about 
Google Chrome
  Click Install.
  Google Chrome should install itself

  What Happens
  ------------
  The Install page does show up.
  After clicking the Install button, the button changes to Installing for a few 
seconds and then changes back to Install.
  Google Chrome is not installed.
  There is no PolicyKit authentication prompt to install software.
  When I run gnome-software --verbose, Progress says 9% which I think is when 
it would ask for authentication.

  Other Info
  ----------
  I am setting the importance of this bug to critical according to #7 of
  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates#Procedure
