Unable to get list of updates

Hello,
Ever since the latest updates installed I’ve been getting errors trying to refresh updates in the software center. This is the error message:

Unable to get list of updates:
Failed to load signature: Invalid compressed data

What does this mean, and what can I do to fix it?

that means something is wrong. not sure what exactly.

you can refresh Gnome Software metadata information by running: pkcon refresh force. What’s the output of that?

Alternatively, use dnf from a terminal windows: sudo dnf update.

It started working again. I’m guessing it’s not an OS issue. Could it have something to do with github and a bunch of other sites being down a couple hours ago?
