Ok I'm new at Ubuntu but:
If I click on Ubuntu Software Center, it opens, but I don't have time to look at it, and it closes itself.

Same thing happened to me, and I got all the same Gstreamer messages. It all started to go wrong after installing "ubuntu-restricted-extras" in order to try to get DVD's to play.
I've re-installed several times and can confirm that "ubuntu-restricted-extras" definately causes this problem for me.
I am very new to Ubuntu and this happened a few weeks ago but I managed to get software center working again by removing "gstreamer0.10-plugins" (either bad or ugly can't remember exactly which) from "synaptic package manager" under System - Administration.
I don't know if this breaks anything else but it all seemed OK for me back then (have re-installed since). I still have not been able to play DVD's - even my own created home movies - so not encrypted - but that's another thread I'm trying to find.

Please note, I'm not suggesting the fix, just what caused the problem for me in the hope that it gives someone a clue to this. Did you install "ubuntu-restricted-extras" by any chance?
