The program can be used to add and manage repositories as well as Ubuntu Personal Package Archives (PPA). Ubuntu replaced its previous Ubuntu Software Center program with GNOME Software starting with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, re-branded as "Ubuntu Software". It also supports fwupd for servicing of system firmware.
gnome-packagekit is another GTK-based front-end for PackageKit, unlike GNOME Software, it can handle all the packages not only applications, and has a few advanced features that are missing in GNOME Software. (see screenshot)
