GNOME Software can newly install .flatpak files, but it fails if the flatpak bundle includes multiple apps. LibreOffice flatpak is a good example, it's one file, but includes Writer, Calc, Impress, Base, Math: http://www.libreoffice.org/download/flatpak/
GNOME Software fails to handle the bundle and install the apps:

It also shows a very generic error message: This did not work. The file is not supported.
