Gnome-software doesn't show packages of third repos

I’m new using Fedora. I’ve installed Fedora 30 and I have enabled several third repositories included and added 2:

PlexRepo                                                              PlexRepo                                                                                     8

  1. What’s the meaning of * at the start of some repo names?
  2. Why does gnome-software not show me, in the search results, any package contained in third party repositories?
    For example, I search celluloid with pkcon:
    $ pkcon search name celluloid
    Buscando por nombre           [=========================]         
    Finalizado                    [=========================]         
    Disponible  	celluloid-0.17-1.fc30.x86_64 (rpmfusion-free-updates)       	A simple GTK+ frontend for mpv
    
    $ dnf search celluloid
    ============================================================= Coincidencia exacta en Nombre: celluloid    =============================================================
    celluloid.x86_64 : A simple GTK+ frontend for mpv
    
    
    But gnome-software shows nothing:
    Captura%20de%20pantalla%20de%202019-09-08%2012-10-50

Do you have rpmfusion-free-appstream-data and rpmfusion-nonfree-appstream-data installed?

Sorry but did you do?

Edit: you need install the packages what is promovides with the rpm fusion.

sudo dnf install rpmfusion-free-appstream-data
sudo dnf install rpmfusion-nonfree-appstream-data

it is what he meant.

Like it is indicated in
https://rpmfusion.org/Appstream-data
https://rpmfusion.org/Configuration

You have installed rpmfusion repos but you didnt config appstreamdata like taokris hade indicated.

Sorry, I didn’t read the message from @taokris correctly.
I’ve installed them now.
It works now.
Thanks for the help.
