    Cannot you just remove software-center package and reinstall it again .

    Re: Software centre

    in a terminal try the following commands:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get autoclean 
    sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf 
    sudo apt-get update
    copy and paste them one at a time see if software center still crashes?

    Good cause that may help others also.
    try taking a look at your home directory look to view hidden files then .config and Software center foder. there is a file there called Software-center-log or something like that. it may hold a clue.

    Re: Software centre

    G'Day This is what I found in the software centre log

    [general]
    maximized = False
    size = 1200, 800
    add_to_launcher = True
    recommender_uuid =
    recommender_profile_id =


    Shouldn't the last two have a value ???

    Re: Software centre

    You can try to open Software Centre through terminal by typing

    Code:
    software-center
    or possibly "software-centre" depending on language version, I'm not sure

    If you get an output that ends with something along the lines of

    Code:
    AttributeError: 'ProgressBar' object has no attribute 'set_data'
    then it's a bug & here's the link to the bug report

    Re: Software centre

    thanks again ts3 here is the output from that command

    miykel@miykel:~$ software-centre
    No command 'software-centre' found, did you mean:
    Command 'software-center' from package 'software-center' (main)
    software-centre: command not found
    miykel@miykel:~$
