Mint and Flatpak

Somehow, I installed a couple flatpax packages. Now I get these huge (like 1 GB) updates from flatppax. This happens only on my laptop. The desktop does not get any flatpak updates.
I uninstall 2 packages that were listed under ‘flatpak list --app’. Then I tried ‘flatpak list’ … see below.

flatpak list --app
easyt@T440:~$ flatpak list
Name Application ID Version Branch Installation
nvidia-470-1… …sktop.Platform.GL.nvidia-470-182-03 1.4 system

Nvidia is not listed under “app”. Nvidia is for the graphic card, but Mint should already have a driver for it, I would assume. So my question - Is there a way to get rid of these large updates for flatpak?

Side note – Seeing the word assume reminds me of the old day back at work. We use to said, “Assume makes an ass out of u and me.” … :laughing:

do the following:

sudo apt install gnome-software along with sudo apt install gnome-software-plugin-flatpak

That should let you get rid of flatpak updates


Thanks Doc.
That removed the flatpak updates.
