Title:
  gnome-software does not treat recommends and suggests as plugins to
  applications | impossible to install "technical" packages (plugins,
  kernels...) | Ubuntu desktop no longer provide graphical method to
  install non-GUI software components

Status in GNOME Software:
  Invalid
Status in gnome-software package in Ubuntu:
  Won't Fix
Status in ubuntu-meta package in Ubuntu:
  Confirmed

Bug description:
  Ubuntu 16.04 will be useless for "normal" people if they can't find every software package as they did before.
  To force users to use gnome-software will be a regression!

  Examples:

  In old Software Center, you could add gimp plug-ins (plug-ins are recommends and suggests packages of gimp) by going in gimp description and check the plug-ins you want!
  In old Software Center, you could install another version of linux kernel by typing "linux" then click at bottom left to show the packages.

  Now, they have to use apt-get or install synaptic!
