Bug ID: 391756
           Summary: appstream URI with bad ID has bad UX
           Product: Discover
           Version: 5.12.3
          Platform: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: discover
  Target Milestone: ---

`xdg-open appstream://foooooooobar.desktop`

discover will throw up one of those error notifications at the bottom about the
id not being found which disappears ever so swiftly, coupled with bug 391754
you could even miss it entirely.

instead I think what would be handy is loading an error page (like an app page,
albeit for displaying grave errors; kinda like the ones in firefox/chrome)
which displays persistent error information.

something like

"Could not find application 'org.foobar'. It may be that it is simply not
available for your Distribution. Please contact your distribution for more

and have distros provide some url you can link to for contact about this, or
perhaps better yet, use /etc/os-release's SUPPORT_URL.
