    Having some trouble with the Ubuntu Software Center

    When I try to open the Ubuntu Software Center the program just freezes there, only with a white screen in it. The problem started a day I was updating some software but my PC shutdown suddenly and the Software Updater and the Software Center never open again.

    Note: I already tried to use the install and uninstall command on the terminal.

    PD:
    Sorry for my bad English is just that I am not use to write in this language.

    Have you tried installing updates again after the first one was interrupted?

    Try update in terminal

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Any errors?

    I already tried that. The terminal sends me this error.

    Yes. But I can only update things from the Terminal.
    The Software Updater crashes every time I open it.

    You need to uncheck CDrom in your sources list.
