Bounty: 50

I have installed FlatPak to my Ubuntu 16.04 LTS system with the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alexlarsson/flatpak
sudo apt update
sudo apt install flatpak

flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists kdeapps --from https://distribute.kde.org/kdeapps.flatpakrepo

and then installed Plasma Discover with

flatpak install kdeapps org.kde.discover

I can run it with

flatpak run org.kde.discover

or from Applications→System→(Nightly) Discover, but it does not show any installed applications

Plasma Discover - Installed

Settings tab is empty too:

Plasma Discover - Settings

What am I doing wrong?
How to make org.kde.discover (Plasma Discover installed as FlatPak) to work with APT, Snap and FlatPak of the system?


Some background: I want to stay on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and have GUI for FlatPak and Snap. This question was the first step.

Notes: I have tested this method on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS – Plasma Discover has the same behavior on it.
