    The bug report you posted had the only known working fix. I reinstalled the OS and will just leave Dropbox off of it until the program gets fixed.

    Re: Ubuntu Software Center not working

    Sorry for my English

    When anybody have problem with Ubuntu Software Center.
    1. restart Ubuntu
    2. start terminal (ctrl+alt+t)
    3. Try command:

    mv ~/.cache/software-center{,.bak}

    Last command renaming the software-center cache in your home directory.
    Then try software center again.

    Or try this:
    1. restart Ubuntu
    2. start terminal (ctrl+alt+t)
    3. Try command

    sudo apt-get remove software-center
    sudo apt-get install software-center
    mv ~/.cache/software-center{,.bak}

    Then try software center again.
    Must be working

    Re: Ubuntu Software Center not working

    software center is just a front end tool to apt
    you can go for synaptic package manager, Kpackage, packagekit if software center is not working
