I have been receiving this error message at start from 3 days:

We're sorry:the update failed to install. Please wait for another update and try again. If the problem persist, contact your software provider.
Detailed errors from the package manager follow:

In this morning I update to TW-20200904.
I tried with
Message comes from GNOME Software - PackageKit, so refreshing zypper state is not going to change anything. Look under /var/lib/PackageKit, what files do you have there? Most likely there is indication of failed update which is not removed automatically.
As a general comment - you should not use PackageKit and anything that is based on PackageKit to update Tumbleweed. The only command that works is “zypper dup”. I use GNOME Software as indication that updates are available and then perform update on command line.
So I followed along this thread because I have a similar issue. I did a new TW install with basic gnome gui option and whenever I open the software app to try and get more apps it tells me: download (curl) error for ‘http://download.opensuse.org/tumbleweed/repo/-non-oss/repodata/repomd.xml’:, now I checked my var/libs/packagekit folder and only have the transactions file. what else can I try?
Don’t use Gnome Software to install applications on openSUSE/TW, use YaST2-Software instead, the main software tool for this distro.
If you are still facing problems, start a new thread with details about the error you see, attaching to an old thread is not a good option generally.
Actually my comment above is wrong (it already was wrong when I made it, I was not aware that PackageKit was fixed). Today PackageKit on TW performs equivalent of “zypper dup”; corresponding changes appeared this spring (March/April 2020). Every now and then there are different issues but in general gnome-software is usable. I use gnome-software on GNOME TW (not intentionally, it simply was set up this way by default) and I use native KDE tool (I have no idea how it is called correctly) in KDE TW. Both work just fine for updating TW since at least couple of months when I switched back to using them.
