Output from journalctl when the crash happened

I'm on Fedora 25 and can't install anything with PackageKit. E. g.

$ pkcon install pidgin
Resolving                     [=========================]         
Loading cache                 [=========================]         
Testing changes               [=                        ] (5%)  The daemon crashed mid-transaction!

I've attached the crash dump that I can see in journalctl.

This seems like the same thing I'm seeing in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1398085

I can confirm that the same thing happens to me when I use pkcon to try to install anything on the CLI:

$ pkcon install Thunar
Resolving                     [=========================]         
Testing changes               [                         ] (0%)  The daemon crashed mid-transaction!

So probably your gnome-software is busted, too.

I'm getting the same thing, here's the gdb of the crash on Fedora 25:

Please let me know if you need anything else.

Most of the action for this issue is now over at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1398085. We should close this to centralize the information there.
