I think this is a bogus change. Look at the code: https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-software/tree/src/plugins/gs-plugin-apt.cc?h=wip/ubuntu-3-22#n846 and then let's see what provides that file laney@nightingale> dpkg -S /usr/share/dbus-1/system-services/org.debian.apt.service aptdaemon: /usr/share/dbus-1/system-services/org.debian.apt.service So no. We are actively using aptdaemon in gnome-software and it is definitely far too late to be switching it out. I guess that without aptdaemon the PK backend is taking over installing packages - you could confirm that by checking the --verbose output if you wanted to. I agree that it would be better if our aptdaemon backend were dropped in favour of using packagekit, but if somebody has time to work on this then it is the task for the start of a cycle, not the end.
