This [1] as a starting point, and this snippet from the discussion I think is

In brief, plasma-discover has some glitches and it seems to be good for 
managing system updates, however it is suggested to use another software for 
package management (read the bug report for details). 

Personally I don't like this situation and I would like to use just a single 
application to manage updates and packages. And despite what I quoted above, 
plasma-discover can be used to install and remove software but it has less 
features (and more bugs?) than other package managers, at least the version 
provided in Stretch.

I think that right now an average user could be confused. Which application 
should be used, Apper, Discover or Muon?
