The Applications panel in Gnome Control Center is empty (shows no applications) from version gnome-control-center-42.1-2 upwards when the malcontent package is not installed. Installing malcontent solves the issue, but also pulls in flatpak as a dependency, which is not always wanted.

This seems to be an Arch issue only, see upstream bug report.

Additional info:
* gnome-control-center-42.1-2 and newer
* upstream bug report:

Steps to reproduce:
* Install Arch Linux with a basic gnome configuration without installing 'malcontent' and 'flatpak'.
* run 'gnome-control-center -v applications': there is nothing to see.
+ install 'malcontent' and run run 'gnome-control-center -v applications' again: Applications are shown.
