Software no longer displaying in Software Center - SCCM 1702

I had an issue at a customer where software was no longer appearing in Software Center on the workstations.  Please note - this screenshot was taken after I fixed the issue.

After much troubleshooting, I was able to fix the issue.

For each application not appearing, I needed to do an "Update Content" in SCCM.

To force the SCCM client to update the application after the content was updated, in the Configuration Manager client, under Machine Policy Retrieval & Evaluation click Run Now.

Monitor the C:\Windows\CCM\Logs\AppDiscovery.log on the client and you should see the application which you ran the Update Content for appear in the log file.

When the application appears, close and re-open Software Center, you will see the application present.
I'm not sure what actions lead up to the many of the applications disappearing in Software Center, however these actions resolved the issue.
