I don't use the Software Management section shown under System

However today was helping an issue related to installing SW and happened
to click on one of the Groups shown and was greeted with a dialog
telling me: "A problem that we were not expecting has occurred. Please
report this bug with the error description". The description being:
"SearchGroups not supported by backend".
So, what "backend" is being referenced and is their a time table to
support the feature?
the SW entry in systemsettings is driven by apper (something we are no
longer shipping by default in f26+), and it relies on a feature provided by
the PackageKit backend that's been missing for quite awhile.
Missing PackageKit backend features are tracked here:
I don't see these getting fixed any time soon either (one reason we finally
moved away from using apper).
