Appstream appears to be missing

If I try to use the application launcher to search for apps and install them, it comes up with an error “Unable to create KIO worker. Unknown protocol ‘appstream’.” I get this to happen repeatedly even with fresh installs. the exact test case ive been using is: open the application launcher, search for “gparted”, click get or install button, error shows up afterward.

using kde neon.


Came here searching for the same issue. Installed Neon yesterday.

Add me to the list. I also just installed KDE Neon today and have repeatedly gotten this message.

Just installed KDE Neon today and get the same error when trying to launch app installs via KRunner
